Default 4X4 will not engage

During the snow fall that hit the south recently I found out that my 4x4 does not engage. I believe that I have isolated the problem to the "front disconnect actuator". I am not all that mechanically inclined but I want to remove the front disconnect actuator to see if it is broken inside. The device moves when I make the switch (4x4H, 4x4L) but the 4x4 never engages. I was wondering if I would be able to remove this part and then place it back on without replacing the gasket. In my younger days I remember that gaskets don't like that very much but since that was the 80s I thought things might have changed. Any suggestions?
