Front Axle 4 Wheel Drive Actuator Replacement 4x4 Dodge Ram




What do you think about this video?

Mark Caudill: Thanks, your video helped me figure out what was wrong with my truck.

Clinton Proctor sr: i did mine a year ago, i cut that shaft and then took that clip off. it wasnt bad becase after i  cut the shaft and got fork out of way

Rick Hunter: Who wouldn't like a well made video, with a good burn out at the end ?

Timothy Joyce: I actually just watched your video last night. Then this afternoon put a new actuator in my truck.  The 4wd light was taking a long time to go on and off.  Now the 4wd engages in and out very quickly.  To get the big snap ring out I bent the clip forward with the beveled side towards the clip and pulled it out in about minute.  Then hammered the actuator, rotating my hits clockwise till it came out.  Figured I would share my story.  Thanks for the confidence from your video to do the job!  

kirt fossum: What kind of oil do you put back in actuator motor housing

John Hall: Is the front actuator in the same place on a 2007 dodge ram 4x4 ???????

dillon14dj: Now come do the one on my 01 ram please lol. Front driveshaft will spend but not tires/and light doesnt come on anymore

Ismael Garcia: Did you have to put more oil once you installed it back on?

Steven Geer: Its 2006. He says it in the first 4 seconds.

EdzGarage: Thanks for the comment and the tip!

daniel torres: why no one mention bushing alignment under actuator between the two axle shaft buy a new actuator 120 dlls and install it was damaged in 3 hours by lack of this bushing the axle shaft moves and bends the fork and this bend the actuator it replaced by a bearing that cost me almost nothing but the damage was done the actuator was bent and now is stuck someone help me!

TheMonstar305: my 99 has abs and brake light on what could be the problem? new senor both side .no TDC

EdzGarage: Thanks for the comment!

Moose magizle: so if I don't have a 4wd light and all the vacuum lines are hooked up that would be the problem???

the1realanalogman: I did an inspection on mine today and discovered that the vacuum line that is connected to the vacuum "motor" isn't hooked up to a vacuum source. I can't seem to locate anyplace to plug the vacuum line into to get the required vacuum signal. I was hoping someone might be able to tell me where this vacuum line plugs into. Thanks.

the1realanalogman: Excellent tutorial and exactly what I was looking for!!! Thanks for your great work and for sharing!!

eric dasilva: MY 98 ram wont get out of 4wd i took the drive shaft out and it still says its in 4wd... someone help ive been messing with it for a bit but nothing..

OneHDNetwork: Then why does Posi-Lok sell a locker that goes right there as shown in this video >> watch?v=wmAq7v93mjE, The only reason I would assume your laughing is that the actuator is there to turn on the 4x4 light, especially when we have a 4x4 shifter lever, in the video there is a switch for the light but it that's all he said it was for... If you think your right and he is wrong then please educate instead of laugh...

EdzGarage: LOL... again.

EdzGarage: LOL
