Auto Locking 4WD Hubs
Remove the hubs with the outside 6 bolts.
The FSM says, not servicable. well.... not really true...
Look for broken parts , clean it and look again ? , if anything is broken, they can't be repaired. (unless you get wrecking yard spare parts)
Remove the inside snap ring ( this will be a harrowing experience ,even with the 6 snap ring tools that I have in tool box)
Now take it apart and cleang it .
Put it back together with a light coat of marine GP grease ( is use a 1/2" paint brush ).
Than I put back that pesky snap ring.

Thank you ED !!
Why I dont like Auto locking hubs:
Each fall , inspect ,clean you hubs before winter comes. And if possible , test them.
Same as the Antifreeze , which I use a RAD hydrometer ( $2) to test the protection level. ( cold engine) ( I digress, but I do both same day in fall)
