Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

Vacuum is used to hold the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) gears out when the engine is running and in 2H. When the engine is turned off, the vacuum will bleed off and the IWEs will lock into place.
Here is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum system ( for New Body Style 2004, not a 2004 Heritage )

When i push in my landcruiser prado model 1994 4/4 button the hub is not locking what can i do ?


You may have a frozen cable to the actuator, or the actuator itself may be bad. Check also for vacuum leak(s). Peace. God bless.

2008 Dodge Avenger wheel hub replacement


The front bearing comes as a hub assembly, so you should be able to unbolt it from the spindle. You still have to take the axle shaft out.

Removing hub assembly on 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.3L 2wd


Remove the axle nut. Place a punch in the fins of the rotor to lock the hub in place when the punch hits the caliper. Remove the caliper and rotor. Unplug the abs sensor Remove the three bolts holding the hub assembly to the knuckle. Remove the hub assembly from the knuckle. It is vitally important to torque the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do this will cause the barring to fail quickly! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How do I fix the ABS light on a 2000 Nissan maxima?


Hi,
The code is for the right rear ABS sensor. The sensor would need to be replaced, BUT !! , there is a service bulletin, that out lines to replace the ABS control unit / Actuator. This bulletin should be performed by a qualified technician. I am sorry to say this repair may be costly. It may also involve rear hub assembles and opening rear hub drains with a drill, on the rear knuckles.
This is only under warranty for 3yrs or 36,000 miles. This is not a recall, just a noted repair procedure.
The reason found why this is happens is that the drain on the rear knuckles are no allowing the water to drain or clog, causing rust build up on the ABS pick ring on the rear hub assemble. The rust builds up and will hit the sensor, causing sensor failure or shorting out the ABS control unit.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The rear wheel bearings on my 1998 Honda Civic Aerodeck are rumbling and I need to know how to replace them or regrease and is it a DIY or garage job


Your vehicle is equipped with sealed bearings that are pressed into the hub assembly. If your rear wheel bearings are making noise, you must replace the entire bearing and hub assembly (they cannot be greased).

To replace it, raise and support the vehicle and remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the brake drum. Remove the bearing cap, the spring nut and the axle washer. Remove the hub assembly and hub seal. The new hub assembly should come with a new hub seal installed. (See first picture below)

TIP: The brake drum has threaded holes in its face where an 8mm bolt can be inserted to help "push" the drum off of the hub assembly - they can get really stuck. (See second picture below)

Adjustment

  1. Place parking brake lever in -full released- position.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
  4. Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster star wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum:
    1. Left brake - Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
    2. Right brake - Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.
  5. Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
  6. Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
  7. Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back off adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
  8. Install access plug.
  9. Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.

  1. Lock out automatic adjuster in parking brake lever.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Access and remove rear hub and bearing.
  4. Remove parking brake cable bolt at knuckle.
  5. Completely back off parking brake shoe adjustment.

Ford F150 4x4 Passenger side hub


The gear on the 4 wheel drive actuator and possibly the hub is stripped.
Remove wheel and brakes and take the four 18mm bolts out of the back and remove the cap on the end of the hub and take off a 12 mm nut. It should then come apart so you can see whats going on.
