Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Four wheel drive will not engage. Front hubs not engaging or disengaging clicking noise . Seems to be both hubs
Is the front driveshaft turning but the wheels are not? or is the noise coming from the transfer case and the front driveshaft is stationary. If the driveshaft is not turning the problem is inside the transfer case. If the driveshaft turns, remove the front differential cover and make sure the gears are not damaged. Before doing that though, If the boots on the axles are torn, chances are that the c/v joints (one or both) have failed. The front diff is an "open type" which means that the wheel with the least amount of traction will receive all the power. If a joint fails there is no "traction": at that wheel so the opposite one will not turn as well. You will see the axle turning but the wheel will remain stationary. If joint has failed, most times it's faster and easier (and not much more $ to buy a complete rebuilt axle). Chilton or haynes manual outlines r&r...not terribly difficult job but if you have any questions about any of it just ask!
