4WD doesn\'t work!! Ideas??
I have a 95 Bronco that has the pushbutton 4WD and automatic hubs. Had a little problem this week. This is my wifes daily driver. She was parking on the side of the road this week and got too close to the ditch and slid off in it. With the automatic hubs, they would not lock and ended up sliding all the way into the ditch. It took me thirty minutes to winch that heavy thing out of the ditch. Then after I got it out and pushed all the right buttons in neutral, etc. to put it back in 2WD. She called me again after I had returned to work, the transfer case had stuck in 4 low. So I have looked at how to fix this problem. I have really 2 questions.
1) What would make the t-case stick in low range and how do I fix that problem to keep this from happening again? Is it something with the solenoids or is it mechanical? This is the most important. Sorry guys but I am just not that familiar with the B-W t-case's
2) According to the catalogs I can swap over to manual hubs, no big deal, but I have to change the spindle nut to do this. I am questioning this because the 95 model actually has a different style spindle nut that earlier models. It has a specific hub socket that is not the same as on my other Dana 44 front and also different from the other common D44 front hub socket. Do I really have to spend $35 (Warns conversion kit) for spindle nuts just to put in a set of manual hubs?
