FWD hub going? #2

I checked the drive shafts and the passenger side will not turn when set to auto. Now what?

Your hub is stuck in 4x4 even though it says auto. Pull off center cap then use a pair of pliers to release big clip ring.Pull out auto hub probably full of dirt and oxidation. Turn hub back and forth between lock and auto till it loosens up and it should work ok, reinstall.

It wouldn't clear. I ended up putting a pair of Warn hubs on. Took care of the problem. Thanks
