Automatic Locking Hub

Remove rubber seal. Remove seal bridge retainer (small metal stamping) from spring retainer ring space. Remove retainer ring by closing ends with needle-nose pliers while pulling hub lock from wheel hub.
If wheel hub and spindle are to be removed, remove "C" washer from stub shaft groove. Remove splined spacer from shaft. Remove wheel bearing locknuts and lock washer. Disassemble, clean and inspect locking hub assembly components.
Remove snap ring and flat washer from inner end of locking hub assembly. Pull hub sleeve and attached parts out of drag sleeve, then **** drag sleeve to unlock tangs of brake band. Remove drag sleeve assembly.

Manual locking hub
Remove manual locking hub assembly.
To remove internal hub lock from outer body assembly, remove outer lock ring seated in hub body groove. Internal assembly, spring and clutch gear should now slide out of hub body.
NOTE: DO NOT pack grease into locking hub. Excess grease can cause an increase in dialing effort.
