4WD controller

Postby andy120 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:05 pm

Anyone know where the 4WD controller for 95-96 wizard is? Doesn't appear to be near the hand brake.

that will be why I cant find it then. I have to stop to go into 4wd, all the vac stuff/switches work per the trooper manual.

I was under the impression I should be able to go from 2wd to 4wd while on the move. Currently I get unhappy noises when trying to do that.

2wd to 4wd should work on the move but it doesnt take much to mess it up. It only works properly in a straight line and if all the tyres are the same size. The reality is if its working stopped that its not very often you need to change on the fly.
If you want to fix it the grinding noise will be coming from the front diff dog clutch assembly which isnt engaging correctly on the move.
