You have done a superb job here! My easy way to replace the lock actuator in a 2001 Ford F150, Driverside. Nov 28, 2012 It can be faulty 4x4 wd switch. The other possible problem is the hub itself. And I can do them in about 15 mins. I believe what you need to do is put the tranny in park or neutral first.
The only difficult part of this for me was getting the actuator pin to fully snap into the lever, and that's likely just because my hands don't work as nimbly as they used to. Keep up the good work. The email notification was almost immediate for tracking purposes. I would sell yours and buy a 4x4. The auto hubs work of a vacuum system. If you can't hear the motor working when you press the switch, the switch, fuse or motor may be to blame. Next---the more involved test Put in 4X4 Jack up the whole front.
The switch sends signal to the window motor. Slide the looooong screwdriver in there and start prying it out. The drivers door only took 12 min total including taking the trim off and back on. You would need a new transmission, transfer case, front axle, and new radias arm mounts. Sorry now that I didn't document the process. When I opened the old ones up no gears were broke and it all looked good. If you look at the actuator you will see it is slid up against a metal plate.
I did the passenger door first. I have a… is it the turn dial 4x4 selector or the manual selector? Encoder motor on the side of transfer case is faulty.

Once you get it out you will understand how it mounts. If that's the question, i would just go out and buy a 4x4.
. Very easy - Great instructions! Also make sure the pin goes into the proper location. After looking at the new actuator and seeing how it attached, I decided to just pry and snap the old one out. I left the battery connected as you did and brought the lamp back through the lining to drop it inside the door panel for better lighting without the need of a torch held between the teeth. I just finished replacing the actuator on the passenger door '99 F150 and thought that if I can do it with arthritic hands I would encourage other women young and old alike to know they can do this, too. When you pry the old actuator you are sliding it sideways off two rails.
The pictures are excellent demonstrations for each step. More than likely the problem is either these hoses dry rotted and leak or feel off. You have a Decent description, but a little more detail might help me, or someone else to know where to start! These hoses run along side of the brake caliper hoses in the wheelwell. Most have a switch for each window as well as a bank of switches for the driver only. Do you mean how to turn a 1986 2x4 into a 4x4? I followed a few steps for dissassembly, wrapping the shunt with foil, then reassembly of the actuators and the modified originals still work great till today! Hey it's already not working, if the mounting tab gets broke, oh well. Ok, here is the method I used.
Just make sure you don't put so much force you bend the metal mounts. This is the third time I have ordered from PartsGeek and will continue based on their quality and response. I took about 35 min. I guess the motors in them just get weak and won't lock or unlock the door. It has o-rings that go bad… Put a little Trans-X in it, then crank it and drive forward a little bit, and while you are still going walking speed, put in reverse and back up, and while stil going backward at walking speed, put in forward, do this a few times and it should operate a lot better.
At this point I also plugged in the switch and tested it's operation. We received the product is a matter of days and in perfect condition. I had one like that, and it would sometimes take a long time to engage, but this straightened it out. Nov 28, 2012 On these issue,there are few solved help links for troubleshooting the issue easily. There is a control unit under the hood on the fire wall, from there it sends vacuum signals by hoses out to the hubs.
