    So I just replaced my transfer case and control arm after a u joint broke and ripped my transfer case in half. Now my jeep is displaying the Part Time icon on the instrument panel and the jeep is making a very prominent clicking noise. How do I fix this? Could the transfer case be stuck in 4wd even if my shiftier is showing 2wd?

    Yes I reset the transfer case switch sensor and the part time went off but it is still making a loud clicking noise. It sounds like its coming from directly below the center console when I'm driving. The clicking gets louder and faster the faster I drive.

    I would check the CV joints on the front drive shaft. Just my guess....

    Also look closely at the Yokes Sounds like you could have a damaged ear on a yoke that holds the Ujoints in place. Make sure they are not bent or cracked. Ive actually had to have my wife drive slowly while I walk outside the vehicle while trying to isolate ticks and thumps before. Don't try this when shes angry. Your liable to get run over. Sometimes I will put it on jacks and see if I can duplicate the noise, but usually these tings only happen under load. Clicks can also be caused by broken teeth anywhere there are gears i.e. differential.

    My boyfriend put it up on jacks and turned it on. We found out that it was a broken rusted piece to the e brake on the rear right wheel. Problems fixed!
