just wondering if the vacuum lines that go to the hubs is the line that comes out were the brake line comes out at the wheel well.


Yes, and if you follow the vacuum line it goes to a fitting on the back of the hub.

WEll im puzzeld. I check and the vacum lines that come out from the inner fender are blocked off Wish a rubber cap. So does this mean my hubs were modified to always be engaged.

It just dawned on me. You are in Canada. Kia Canada eliminated the vacuum hubs and installed Warn 61918 hubs as a campaign to fix the vacuum hub issues. It appears that one of your hubs is locked in. Try backing up about 10 feet a few times and see if it unlocks. If not you'll have to find out which hub won't unlock.

It is also possible that someone figured out how to permanently lock the vacuum hubs.

Not sure. I have no direct experience with those type of hubs.

Got a fairly new transfer case. Here's the deal:

I have an automatic transmission...When I shift IN or OUT of 4L while moving (in N or drive) faster than 5 miles per hr. I hear the gears grind! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I have to come to almost a complete stop before I can shift and only then it engages without incident.

What could be wrong?

Thanks,
Mikey

Nothing is wrong. The gears in the transfer case are sliding gears and have no syncros. You must be at a complete stop before shifting into or out of 4L.

Need a Spot
Hey guys. Just like many of you, I hardly use the 4W on my 02 Sportage and after yesterday's 24" of snow I found out today that my 4W-drive is out. I have no clue how long it's been out but it's been some time I'd wager.

I'm thinking of getting the autolocking hubs from Warn to replace the stock ones. Couple of questions first though?

I get how manual locking works, but how does automatic work without the vac-hoses? Does the diff start turning the axles and the hubs just lock in step, or is it something else that I'm missing here?

Is there a warranty on the parts themselves or do I have to buy from Warn to get the warranty? I don't want these blowing up on me and forking out money for another set. I want them replaced if at all possible.

Thanks!

Yes, I'm boring. I'm looking to change that.
