Hi, I have a 991 Suzuki JLX Vitara. The Front Right hub is locked into 4WD and I can seem to unlock it. Any suggestions? Also the gearbox of late feels notchy, sometimes difficult to change into gear. Does gearbox need to be lubricated...or is this a serious problem?

Spray with wd40 then put mole or vice grips on flat edge where finger & thumb would normaly go gently as its cast alloy get someone to move car backwards & fowards a few inches IE rock back & forward as you try to move the diff lock but make sure both front wheels are in the straight ahead position put in 4w high or 4w low put screew driver in between mole or vice grip prise very gently should move I had to do this on mine as normaly indicates that its not been used in a while then drive gental every now & then with both diff lockes engaged to keep them free dont go far with them locked on dry roads as hand book describes use em or loose em! use in snow ice wet slippery muddy surfaces remember switch em off when back on dry roads.

Try hammering the front right hub with a wood or a rubber hammer while slowly reversing the vehicle, and keep on unlocking the hub while doing this.
spray it with lubrication first
yes, you need to change the gear oil in your gear box
Have your clutch re adjusted, it may be worn out , that's why you are having a hard time changing gears or have it bleed to keep the air out if you are using hydraulic.
If you dont hear any noise in your gear box while driving, its nothing serious, worst thing could be replacing your clutch lining and pressure plate.

I have a 56 plate jimny the fourwheel drive light is on on the dash is it stuck in fourwheel drive ?


Did you reverse more than 10 metres? Sounds like the hubs are locked into 4wd.this will work if you have auto hubs.but sometimes you have to turn the hub manually if they don't disengage.if you have gone some time or distance in 4wd

How do i remove front hub


hello anon.
2wd or 4wd car?, this Counts big time? i toss coin; land 4wd.
The USA car can be Vitara or Grand Vitara. and cut in dates vary for that too.
the 2002 has no end locking hubs.
so you must mean front wheel bearing hubs.
ok its easy with tools.

GOT TOOLS?
http://www.fixkick.com/hubs/FW_BEARINGS.html#newer

to be accurate i need full spec on car
country
engine sizes. and if 2wd or 4wd.

my guess is your car has the unified hubs. (bearings can not be removed)
you unbolt it.
you put the new hub on
you torque it to 123-180 Ft/lbs, this is the running torque not a preload)
if not, it will fail fast.

that page even has the FSM chapter page there. to see.
from a real Suzuki, 2004.
can be seen tool, at alldata.com
or at suzuki pit stop , dot com (google it) its there.

My suzuki grand vitara has keyless start/entry but I have never been able to lock the doors with the starter token in the car when it is not running is this a safety/security feature?


most newer vehicles will not lock the door with the keys in the ignition and/or the keyless start remote fob in the vehicle. Vitara has a small button on the handle that will unlock the door if you have the fob in your pocket if the fob is in the car it can"t be secured since it is set up to unlock when the fob is within a couple feet of the vehicle. I know this is a late post for your question maybe it will help others

I have no drive on the front wheels of my suzuki vitara


Your front wheel hub is not locking when you engage the 4WD stick. Maybe the hub was not correctly installed during your last wheel bearing repacking.
