What I have done in the past when manual locking hubs were difficult, is have a friend get in the vehicle and slowly roll backwards while I attempted to unlock the hub.

1996 suzuki sidekick 4x4 not working, indicates that it is engaged but wont work


Your hubs may not be locking. With your hubs in the locked position, raise the front tires off the ground, manually rotate each front tire and see if the axle connected to the tire spins along with the tire. If not your hubs may not be locking the wheel to the axle. Good luck.

The 4x4


if you are driving and 4wd is not needed then your hubs should be in the free position. the only time they should be in the locked position is when you are using 4wd.

91 suzuki side kick 4x4 manual. When I lock the hubs in, and put it into h4, the front wheels don't grab. The transfer case seems to be working fine. When I lock the passenger side hub in, you can hear the...


Hubs do quit working. Jack both front wheels off of the ground and lock the hubs but leave the transfer case in 2wd. If you spin one wheel the other should spin backwards. If not replace the hubs. If they do spin correctly, you may have a transfer case problem or a front chunk problem.

Manual hubs are stuck and can't be engaged


Perhaps replacing the hubs would fix the problem. Locking hub often sit unused if you are not a frequent user of 4x4. This lack of use leads to the hub being hard to turn and in need of replacement. http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/1990-to-1998-suzuki-sidekick.htm has examples of various aftermarket hubs, personally I think the Warn hubs are the best.

It probably has some water contamination, remove the small outer screws and pull out hub, spray some lube into it and see if it will free up.
