Fourtrack 4wd problems on front autolock hubs


Hi all,

I have an "M" reg Foutrack that doesn't want to engage into 4WD on the front hubs. I have taken them both off of the vehicle and stripped them down as far as I can. There is no obvious damage and are not siezed. Does anyone know what actually goes wrong with these units?
Daihatsu want about £200.00 per unit. Is there a cheaper source anywhere or can they be repaired? I have checked that the front drive shafts are turning when the front wheels are engaged.

Is there a workshop manual for this vehicle as Mr.Haynes hasn't got round to publishing one yet.

Lots of questions I know but hopefully someone can help.

Many thanks

Have a look on the Worldwide Association of Rocky Feroza and Sportrack website (WARFS ), they have got some great downloadable manuals and heaps of tech stuff as well.
