  1. Found it. Enter 5 digit factory code. Press 1/2 for 1 second. 8/9 Will flaw to show unit is in programming mode. Within 5 seconds of each digit, enter new 5-digit code. Door will unlock-lock-unlock to show programming is successful.
  2. Mine is installed by the dealer but how the heck do I program it to a different number? I can't find anything on the internet about it
  3. Thanks for all the help and ideas. it helped me know that I wasn't going crazy or doing something completely stupid.
  4. THIS. This is the tool I should have had all along. It's better suited for these snap rings that have no holes. This tool has flat tips that are knurled to help grab the beveled edge. Once I had this tool in hand, it only took three or four attempts and I got this bearing out. I had literally already given up and was putting the transfer case back together. Since I had large chunks together it was easy to take large chunks back out to get to this bearing and change it out. I'm very happy I didn't leave the job undone. Lesson learned. Get the right tools. I just didn't know I didn't have the right tools.
  5. I gave up. I fabricated my own tool by grinding some flat spots on an 11 inch needlenose pliers. It came close to expanding the spring clip enough. But even with the spring clip completely disappearing into the molding of the case, it was not enough expansion to remove the bearing. It's almost like the clip was 1/16 of an inch too short. I believe if it was that much longer I could expand it enough. Although it did not complete the job, the tool I fabricated worked better than the spring clip pliers.

  6. I've expanded the ring probably 250 times, and it doesn't help. When I go back to it, I'm going to try to push the bearing one way or the other and see if that helps make room. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  7. Yes I've tried that. There's just not enough room. I think you may be onto something about moving the bearing inward or outward to give all the space to one side. I think it may be sitting right in the middle. I've given up for the day and have gone home. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  8. You may be right. Because what you've described so far I don't think physically can be done where it currently sits. I've tried simply compressing the ring inward to see if it will compress at all. It won't. And there is no space at all to pry the ring upwards, but I can push it down a little bit. I'm thinking about just leaving the darn thing in there because it has no play and it sounds solid. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the reply. And the idea. If I understand you correctly, you had to basically destroy the clip to get it out. Correct?
  10. I'm overhauling my np263xhd transfer case. I have the thing in a million pieces on my bench.One of the c-clips has me stumped. It is on the input shaft bearing and it is mostly covered by molded casing. I will try to attach some pictures.But basically, the c-clip is covered except for 2 small sections at the 12 and 6 position. I've tried everything I know with spring clip pliers. But there's just not enough room to get the clip out or get the bearing out.What the heck do I do and how do I get this thing out?
  11. True enough, but it is more of a work area thing. I'll basically be doing it in a gravel parking lot. I'm still considering your suggestion, though.
  12. Add me to this not-so-exclusive club. Before I bought this truck I even looked for this particular problem while on the dealer lot. But I looked too high on the transfer case and missed it. I knew it was bad news when I was changing the differential fluids, transmission fluid and transfer case fluid last night. When I took the fill bolt off, it was dry. And I'm not even sure more than one or two ounces came out when I took the drain bolt off. I've only had it for about a thousand miles but I'm going to assume that the transfer case is pretty much trashed and not tried any attempt at J-B Weld or even an overhaul. I think I'll just replace it. I've done that before on a buddy's truck. Too bad that buddy has written me off for something totally unrelated or I would call him to come help me. Now I just got to figure out which transfer case to buy and from whom. I know I have the np263 and probably the NP263XHD, more specifically. Larry
  13. I thought about that. How hard is it to get the door trim and everything off to access it? Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
