Crappy auto locking hubs might be shot.

Re: front diff

<font face="Comic Sans MS">It has been said that there's a little clip inside where the cable attaches to the front diff that is known to break.. Unfortuneately I don't know many/any details about that (yet)... Sorry I couldn't be of any more help at the moment... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]</font>

Re: front diff

The little clip is actually a spring, if you take the bottom three bolts out of the output shaft you can pull the cable housing out enought to see this if the spring is not engaging the cable or it is broken no 4-wheel.
