    '02 Explorer 4x4 problems

    I just bought a used '02 Explorer 4x4 and it's stuck in 4 High. I think the problem is the 4x4 module behind the glove box. If I try to shift in neutral, the 4 Low light just blinks. Before getting it fixed or the transfer case, if that's it, can I remove the front drive shaft so I don't cause...
