Auto locking hub seperating

Postby Dustin » 10 Jan 2017 16:24

Hi guys

Has anyone had the same problem I'm having ?
It's happened 3 times now in the last 6 months that when I reverse and pull away I get a big 'kluck' noise from the passenger front wheel.
I open it and the auto locking hub seems to has separated and I sit with a bunch of plates and springs in my hands :eek:
I bang it all back together each time, but I'm starting to get a bit tired of it.

Any bright ideas out there ?

I'm trying to think how mine looked when I last took them apart to re grease he wheel brearings. :think: :think: :think:

Do a search on auto hub repair, I know Micheal did some work on his hubs if I recall correctly, with photos.
