It may be necessary to remove the hubs and clean out any dried grease that is preventing the actuation of the hub locks. Remember that it may be only one hub that is causing the problem so ensure that you have turned the dial until you hear it click in to place.

SOURCE: Knocking noise when accelerating!!

Knocking noise is generally from the engine. What is your oil pressure? If pressure is low and oil is reasonably full, refrain from driving it till the cause is determined. Noise can also come from the transmission or transfer case but more likely it's from the engine.It can come from sticking valve lifters (moderately bad to potentially serious) connecting rod or main crank bearings (always serious) or piston slap (annoying, expensive but not terribly serious unless very bad) Piston wristpins can also knock but are very rare in todays pistons. Either way, this is not an item to ignore.

SOURCE: how do you replace front hub assembly on jeep

Remove brake assembly and rotor, including axle nut (do first...about 175 ft lbs torque...a real bear to get loose) There are three 12point bolts on backside of steering knuckle. loosen them and back out about 1/2 inch...Give them a good shot with a hammer to begin pushing bearing from knuckle. (I leave an old wrench on each as I hammer so they don't deform too much.) Use lots of wd40 and sometimes you need to get a chisel and hammer between the bearing and knuckle to separate them. Reverse process (except for hammering part) to replace.

1988 jeep won't start


Not sure if I read your post right, but you have to have a hot wire to the ignition switch from the battery, independent of anything else on the car, before the switch will work.
The CPS is a common problem on the jeeps, though. If bad, you may not get a coil signal.

Locks won't work and Windows won't go down brought


Check for a broken wire in the door jam. Other wise I think, You need to research this more, that the Left Front Power Window Switch is actually a door module. I would guess it has either lost power or gone bad.

How do I remove and install hubs on the front end of a 97 jeep grand cherokee?


It is actually very easy. Lift the vehicle and support it properly remove the 5 lug nuts retaining the wheel. Remove the wheel. If it is a 4 wheel drive remove the spindle nut locking the c.v. axle to the hub. Remove the washer. Push the axle through the splined hub. using a 13 mm or 15mm depending on the hub remove the three bolts reatining the hub assemble to the steering knuckle. assemble in reverse order.

How do i lock in my 4wd on my 1989 jeep cherokee?


They shouldn't have any amnual hubs in the fornt axle. You simply have to shift into "4HI" position and its locked in. Some have a part time 4WD position but its not locked in 4WD all the time. Older models you had to turn a lever on both front wheels to lock. Some models its a switch on the dash to engage not a lever in the floor.

Changing my 1989 from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive and Anti-Locking Braking System


An ABS system will have wheel sensors installed. Remove one of your wheels and look for a wiring harness that runs to your steering knuckle(the part that you brake rotor and strut is attached to. Also, either you front half shaft or brake rotor will have what looks like gear teeth on them. These are the magnets the sensor reads. If your Jeep has either of these it has an ABS system. Secondly the chassis on the Cherokees should be the same irregardless of trim level (limited vs regular). These trim levels affect the interior trim and power extras only not the mechanical parts.
