Cut and pasted Whirlibird's post in the FSM Sticky to here for more visibility...
Anybody have the FSM, article link or know the answer?

I understand the FSM has some testing and removal information for the locker. Mine is not working (did last winter) and I have run into a snag removing it from the rear axle. I found a link online where someone refurbished their locker and figured I needed to do the same. That site referred to the FSM for testing functionality and making sure it was in the correct position after reassembly before installation. I hoped it had removal information as well.

It must be locked before removal and before installation. Check these links

Those lockers all function the same way so don't worry about the FSM year other than the wiring colors may not be consistant.
That's my .02, I hope it helps you.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
So what would I do if the locker is stuck in the unlock position to remove the actuator? The reason I am removing it is that it isn't functioning, i.e. won't lock even when the tires slightly spin on soft ground. I have tried activating while stopped, slowly moving, turning, S turns all to no avail.

The site I found online, the guy somehow removed the actuator even when it wasn't working. He found corrosion between the diff housing and the actuator (aluminum and steel <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" />). Anyway, he got it off, but how is my question. I need to do the same.

Sorry, I haven't had to do that, so I can't offer any assistance there. I would still go through their troubleshooting section to make sure a signal is being sent to that solenoid.

Agreed. I did see a couple posts out there where the guys have taken a BFH to the rear to make things move; just don't whack your sensor. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />
