AU Auto Mechanic: Mechanic Martyn, Australia Car Mechanic replied 7 years ago
Hello
The hubs come in two types - manual lockers where you have to get out and turn a thing in the centre of the hub or auto lockers where you don't do anything they lock when you go into 4wd .
Which version do you have?
kind regards
