How to drop the drive shaft 2006 kia sportage not LX v6 4wd and 2wd push button for 4wd have tow dolly want to put front wheels on dolly any problems with doing that thank you


This is what I would do; Drive it on to dolly. Secure the front tires to the dolly have it ready to tow. Go under the Sportage remove the 4 nuts and bolts attaching the drive shaft to the rear differential. Disconnect the drive shaft and ziptie it to the chassis above rear differential. Leaving the front of the drive shaft in the transmission will prevent it leaking trans fluid. Ready to go!

I would be afraid to tow with any of the wheels on pavement. You could burn out the central differential.

If the rear wheels are going to be on the ground and turning, then disconnect and remove the driveshaft going to the rear differential. That would be the easiest and safest way to prevent damage to the transmission and drivetrain and would also make the vehicle a bit easier to control.

Can i tow 94 subaru legacy awd with a tow dolly


Not true. If you have the fuse in place to disconnect the rear wheels it is safe to tow on a dolly. Subaru recommends not more than 40 MPH and only for short distance if it is an automatic. Manual may be towed longer distance. Have a great day.

No!!! Do not tow.
Unless it is a very, very short distance...do not tow. Are there lock out hubs on front? If yes, unlock them, and then remove the rear drive shaft from the rear end. If you can unlock the front hubs, then this will prevent the front differential from turning the front drive shaft to the transfer case. Then you can disconnect the rear drive shaft, and hang it somehow up high against the body so that it will NOT be HIT by the spinning connector yoke on the rear end. Leaving the drive shaft in the transfer case will prevent the loss of oil. BUT......It is critical that it completely clears the spinning yoke on the rear end... or else it will be damaged and may damage other things also. It is also important to remember that as you tow, the vehicle bounces up and down, so there needs to be several inches of clearance between the drive shaft and the connector yoke on the rear end. . If you do not have lock out hubs in the front, then disconnect the front shaft from the front end and hang it also. Use PB Blaster or similar oil to ease the process. If towing on a tow dolly, then you need to only remove the rear shaft. Be careful and make sure that whatever you use to hang the shaft is sturdy.
