How hard is it to change the 4 wheel drive manual hubs.

Can anyone do this or do I need to get someone who knows what they are doing?

Thanks

It is pretty simple procedure. Below are instructions for removal and installation on your vehicle.

REMOVAL:
Loosen the front wheel lug nuts.
Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle.
Remove the lug nuts and wheel/tire assembly.
If equipped, remove the lug nut retainer washers from the wheel studs.

TIP:Some gentle tapping with a soft faced hammer may help to loosen the locking hub if it seems stuck.

Remove the manual locking hub assembly from the rotor by pulling straight outward.
Inspect the O-ring seal on the back side of the hub assembly and, if damaged, replace it.

Inspecting the rubber O-ring seal for damage.

INSTALLATION:
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Ensure that the rotor mounting face is flat and free of burrs, dirt or grease, especially where the O-ring seal makes contact.
