One of the brushes on my 98 xlt's transfer case shift motor is broke off. How do I replace the brush and where would I get a new brush. Please help

Weird :hammer: How did one of the brushes break like that? I'm not sure if they sell just the brushes so you'd most likely need to find them in a used shift motor. I'm not sure, but you may be able to remove the brushes from any electrical motor and cut them down to size so they fit..

I had someone work on the transfer case. It worked until then. They broke it I guess.

That is weird :confused: Are you saying you disassembled the shift motor and found the brushed were broken?

One was. It is broke about 3/4 of the way off. There is a little brush left on there , but I guess it's not enough
