Try hammering the locking hub with a wood or a rubber hammer while slowly reversing the vehicle,
spray it with lubrication first.

How do I release the tranfer box stick to two wheel drive in my suzuki sierra 4x4 It is stuck in 4 wheel drive


no year wow,. nor 4wd options stated.
in what country, and what model Sierra, since 1981.?
5 generations. many are part time 4wd, ever read who to use that?

if in part time 4wd, you need to be off dry pavement, do drive
gently to soft dirt ,grass /sand or gravel and shift out out of part time.

is it just he light stuck on, or is it really in 4wd, driving on ice?
what?

I have a Suzuki 2L diesel 2004 Grand Vitara and recently the 4x4 does not disengage even though i have put the lever back down to 2. Eventually after a few hundred metres it disengages back to 2 wheel...


hello and greetings. you did not say what driveline options
were purchase when car was new. so, can not answer.
but if car is PT 4wd, I can. if not get it fixed, by any 4wd shop.

the car is full time 4wd or AWD ?
PT:
the Part time 4wd must not be driving on dry pavement.
so drive to dirt or grass or ice and then shift back to 2wd

there is a TSB from Suzuki on wind up.

exceptions?
sure , the 2004 options statement here. and the rules for PT 4wd.
http://www.fixkick.com/part-time-test.html

Suzuki Grand Vitara/Escudo -full-time 4WD using limited-slip center differential, off-road 4WD with selectable center differential lock and low range transfer case 4 mode (4h, 4h lock, 4l n), traction control and electronic stability control
Suzuki offered as an option AWD for Grand Vitara's in 2004 (XL7 too) Some Suzuki AWD you can not use lock on dry pavement, so read the operators guide carefully.

suzuki sells the operators guide if lost,
$4 day pass
$25 for full pdf.

What does free wheeling hubs do i have lots of noise comming from them while in two wheel drive


Free wheeling hubs are installed on the hubs to engage the axle and lock to the hubs making them turn. When you disengage the hubs (freewheel) the axle is not driving the hub hence you have effective 2 wheel drive I suggest you check wheel bearings or make sure that they are in fact disengaged properly

1991 vitara front wheel bearing/hub assmby diagram


91 Grand Vitara? They don't show one till '99 just the Sidekick and the Sameri The 99 shows a bearing the the hub presses into. 262071994.jpgThis bearing is the one for the front in a four wheel drive. You did'nt say if your four wheel or not either. This bearing costs 20 bucks at my parts store. This is not the right baring for a two wheel drive as I did'nt think you'd be asking if it was ywo wheel drive. the difference between a 91 and a 99 arn't likly as this information is for vehicals sold in the USA.

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.

Vitara freewheel hubs stuck in drive position . ( jx4u2 mod.)


Yes you can strip them down but its not easy and you need to be mindfull that there are two large springs inside. You will prob find that there is a part inside that has disintergrated causing the hub to stay in drive. Not sure if you can buy the pars singally though.
