Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.

Unless you know something I don't I don't think this can be done

1989 isuzu trooper right front wheel clicking and does not engage in 4 wheel drive (when all four wheels are in the air)


Check the automatic locking hub on the right side. BEWARE: You MUST have the appropriate special service tools for this job!!!!!

The vehicle will not engage in 4WD operation when the vehicle is off the ground, as the automatic locking front hubs require front wheel load to engage. When the hubs DO lock, it is normal to hear 2 to 3 soft clicks. Anything after that indicates a problem.

If memory serves, there is a cam bushing behind the plate that will wear out, and if the plate is worn out, the hub clicks and will not engage.

Automatic 4x4 locking hubs one side not locking in


There is a possibility the axel U-joint is binding, this will put side load on the hubs and keep them from working properly. Turn the steering wheel either far right or left and with front of truck off the ground or the front end disengaged, see if the axel shafts turn free, both sides. If there is binding the U-joint(s) will have to be replaced.

Four wheel drive lights come on but no four wheel drive


The light comes on indicating that the transfer case is engaged in 4wd, but that doesn't mean the hubs are locked. If you have automatic locking hubs, you should check to make sure they are working correctly. This GM vehicle may be equipped with vacuum locking hubs... meaning there is a vacuum line running from the transfer case selector to the hubs on each side. The vacuum makes the hubs lock into place. If those vacuum lines are damaged or missing, they wont lock. If you have electronic locking hubs, they may need to be replaced. Good luck.

I have i 95 kia sportage and the automatic hubs won't lock the 4 x4 light turns on and in 4 lo the gearing changes but only turns the rear wheels i just bought the car and didn't know the 4x4 didn't work...


Remove the automatic locking hubs from the vehicle. You will probably notice on one hub or the other the alloy tabs that extend from the inner part of the lockout hub are sheared off, they will probably be found loose in the hub or near the bearing. The manufacturer Warn makes a good replacement automatic hub for the Kia Sportage; Warn part # 61918 for the automatic hub or if you prefer the manual hub Warn part # 60247. The hubs come with excellent instructions to remove the existing hub parts as well as the installation of the new hubs. This seems to be a common failure with the Kia Sportage and almost certainly is your problem.

95 dodge 2500 4x4 front axle clicks in 2wd not 4wd when engaged


Do you have automatic locking hubs? Do you need to turn hubs on wheels in order to have 4 wheel drive work? If all you do to get in 4wd is move shifter, then you have automatic locking hubs. The clicking indicates that the hubs are not fully disingaging. To check, block rear wheels, jack front up, and turn tire. the axle should not be turning...if it is, hub is still ingaged....time for new hubs.....if hubs are bad, and you want to save money, you can purchase a set of manual hubs made by (WARN)...its more than half the cost, but you will have to turn hubs to lock and unlock manually. Note...you still need to use the gear selector to put and take out 4wd.

4 wheel drive (auto locking hubs) seems to be trying to engage.


I had the same thing happen. The automatic locking hubs are faulty, causing one or both hubs to try to engage or disengage onto the front driveshaft. This makes the clicking noise and loud clunking that you hear. You may notice your steering pulling to one side of the road,because one hub is locked in. Replace the automatic hubs with new ones, do not try to fix the old ones. I liked the
convience of automatic hubs but replaced mine with manual hubs, there just way more reliable.
