Thats because they are all really expensive and not worth the $. most bronco owners including myself replace them with a set of Warn manual hubs. they will last 10x as long and 1/3 the price.

1992 ford full size bronco xlt push button 4x4 auto locking hubs. I do not think 4x4 is working. yellow 4x4 high will come on will not go in low.


Junk the autolocking hubs for a set of good quality manual locking hubs. Your local auto parts store should have them in stock. E-Bay is a low-cost option but all premium hubs come with a warranty regarding failures and saving a couple bucks online is not worth it to me when I can warranty them at the local parts store. Get yourself a manual (Chilton or Haynes) and they will give you complete directions. As for the low range not working I found on my '92 that I had to pull the shift actuator motor off of the transfer case and re-apply the grease to the shaft as the old grease was stiff a non-pliable. It has not failed me since and I put it into low at least once a month to ensure that it works before bad weather hits.

How to remove routers for a for bronco 85 302 full sized


Removing rotors.

1. Jack up, put on jack stands and remove tire (obviously)
2. Remove caliper
3. Remove bolts holding locking hub body to hub
4. Remove snap ring from end of axle, Remove hub retainer ring from ID of wheel hub. Use a small screwdriver or pick to start it out of the groove. Remove the hub body
5. Remove the outer bearing lock nut, lock washer and the inner adjusting nut
You need the special socket for this OTC #7158 or similar
6. Remove the outer bearing and then the hub
7. To separate the rotor from the hub, use a soft faced hammer to drive the studs out
8. Turn the hub over and set the new rotor in place. Put the studs back in.
9. I will usually use an air hammer to drive the studs back in. Alternating in a circular pattern. If you don't have access, you can use a large diameter punch or another hammer on the back of the studs.
10. Now would be a good time to repack the bearings and replace the wheel seals. Pull the spindles and check the bearings and seals in the back of them. If they are not rusted, slab some grease on them and put back together.
11. Install the hub and rotor assy, and the outer bearing and bearing adjustment nut.

Cannot remove automatic hubs


There is a small o- snapp ring under the grease around chrome hub. Clean gease and then remove with an automtive pick. That will lead to nother snapp ring. Exloded view autozone.com. You still need a spanner socket to remave bearing nut.

Good lighting will help. Also, use a brake cleaner spray or penetrant to clean things off so you can see .I have a 1996 F150 with push button 4WD with manual locking hubs. Dana 44 axle. Yours may be similar. For front wheel, remove locking ring just inside the inner edge of the hub housing (once you remove the manual hub locking switch, 6 screws on mine, could be 3 on others). Not conspicuous, took me awhile to find. Your hub locking assembly will appear to be recessed just behind its edge goes around outer circumferance. Next, Remove the locking spring (looks like a washer) around the very end of the spline shaft. This is towards the center around the shaft. There is a silver looking retainer ring you have too pull it over, use very small standard screwdriver. Locking mechanism should pull right out after that, giving you access to the outer bearing adjustment nut. Use 4 prong wheel bearing nut socket readily available at auto parts stores. Remove adjustment nut. Next, remove spacer that fits into keyway on shaft. There is nothing holding it on, just pull it off. Beneath that there is another bearing nut, remove this also with 4 prong socket. Just pull hub off after removed. Sometimes rust will keep you from removing at this point. Just get a good penetrant lubricant, spray on and let soak, repaeat if necessary . You can also get a plastic 4lb+ dead blow hammer to assist. Bang on rotor from inside to out. Be prepared to service wheel bearings, they fit into the inside of the rotor/hub assembly and will be dislodged when you remove it. This is as far as I have gotten myself. Good Luck.
