Question 2002 Hub Lock Replacement

Hello All,

I need to replace the hub lock in my truck because you can not longer turn the manual locking mechanism. Does the weight have to be off the hubs? Does the tire have to come off? It looks like I just remove the snap ring and the hub lock should fall right off.

Any insight is certainly appreciated.

Thank you,
Fred

It comes right out, you don't need to "unload" it in any way.

Also, you might try to just repair it! Mostly they just need a good cleaning & greasing to work again...

If I try to clean them and then it doesn't work, I am concerned about not having a replacement on hand so I can keep the truck on the road.

I might pull it off and have a look-see.

If you screw it up you can always put the hub back in without the guts inside it. Mine was unsalvageable due to the orings and seals falling apart. I couldn't even turn mine any more with a set of pliers. Tried to rebuild them before i knew what i was getting into. Long story short they were messed up and would not even engage any longer. Ran them without guts for about 2 months before i ordered WARN hubs. Did not mess anything up at all, kust sucked not having 4x4 and having to be conscious of where your going...

I slid my f350 down hill sideways on a steep snow covered clay (Caleachy spl?) road, while high up in the mountians of New Mexcio on a Bull elk hunt when I lived out there.
My right front hub squarely smashed against a shape pointed boulder,stopping me dead in the tracks, shattering my hub selector. 3 WD sucks when stuck and broken.

If you get new hubs, Warn Premiums are the way to go. No more Vac issues with the manual hubs, disconnect and plug those vac lines and forgit about it.
