manual locking hub problem

Hi everyone
I discovered today that the 4wd was not working. I have an XL with manual hubs and floor shifter. When the hubs are locked and I try to turn the axles, the driver side won't turn but the pass. side can be turned and makes a clicking sound. Is it a big job the change the locking hub? Looks like it will slide out after removing the 3 bolts.

No it's pretty easy if you're mechanically inclined, have the proper tools and/or have a manual. In fact I'm sure there's a YouTube video somewhere describing how to rebuild one.
It's pretty common to hear around here, so I'm sure there's a write up somewhere around here.
Oh, have you checked the solenoid under the air filter box? That's usually the problem.
Good luck,

Honestly, it'll take you longer to take the wheel off than it will to change the hub. Take it off and check it out before you buy one, might just need some grease. If it looks good but dry, try to grease it and get it moving again before you shell out for a new one.
