Took the bolt off the very bottom of my transfer case trying to drain it. A spring and what looks like a 9mm bullet almost came out. Wondering what order and how they go back in or if they are part of something I broke?!

Hello - I would consult a service manual on your transfer case problem if possible, but basic guidance would be: the "bullet" would go back in first, followed by the spring, followed by the ’"bolt". Examine the "bullet" - one end should be machined to match the spring, or be flat where the spring would contact it. For further assistance, I would recommend a transfer case inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
