ISSUE:

A “buzzing” and/or “growling” noise may be heard from the transfer case shift lever. This may be caused by transmission gear noise traveling through the shift lever.

ACTION:

Replace the transfer case shift lever knob. The new knob has been revised with a softer material to dampen noise and vibration before it can be transmitted into the cab. This should reduce the possibility of noise in the cab.
