cant move the shifter on manual tcase help!!!!

so today i pulled out my 1354m out of a truck and a couple weeks ago when i was looking at it pulled the shifter back to make sure it moved and it moved but it was really hard to move well today i got in and tried to move it back forward but it wont its stuck. how can i loosen up the little piece that sticks out the side of the tcase that the shift linkage bolts to so it will move easier i know its not the shifter its self because that moves just fine off the truck. so how can i loosen that with out separating the case and if i have to separate the case how hard its it im kinda afraid to get in over my head.


thanks alot guys
