Hi all, I've got a 1997 Vit, 1.6jlx  lwb auto, with manual hubs. When I select 4WD and lock the hubs (the switches turn quite easily from free all the way to lock) we're getting no drive from the front wheels. (only found this out as we NEARLY got stuck in some mud the other day and as the back wheels were spinning the front were doing nothing Confused !)

Any help and/or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Mike

jack up the whole car and see if the prop shaft turns.

if it does it points towards front diff/axle. if not its the t/fer box
