Question about 2000 Suzuki Vitara
Hi, I have a 991 Suzuki JLX Vitara. The Front Right hub is locked into 4WD and I can seem to unlock it. Any suggestions? Also the gearbox of late feels notchy, sometimes difficult to change into gear. Does gearbox need to be lubricated...or is this a serious problem?
Spray with wd40 then put mole or vice grips on flat edge where finger & thumb would normaly go gently as its cast alloy get someone to move car backwards & fowards a few inches IE rock back & forward as you try to move the diff lock but make sure both front wheels are in the straight ahead position put in 4w high or 4w low put screew driver in between mole or vice grip prise very gently should move I had to do this on mine as normaly indicates that its not been used in a while then drive gental every now & then with both diff lockes engaged to keep them free dont go far with them locked on dry roads as hand book describes use em or loose em! use in snow ice wet slippery muddy surfaces remember switch em off when back on dry roads.

Try hammering the front right hub with a wood or a rubber hammer while slowly reversing the vehicle, and keep on unlocking the hub while doing this.
spray it with lubrication first
yes, you need to change the gear oil in your gear box
Have your clutch re adjusted, it may be worn out , that's why you are having a hard time changing gears or have it bleed to keep the air out if you are using hydraulic.
If you dont hear any noise in your gear box while driving, its nothing serious, worst thing could be replacing your clutch lining and pressure plate.
