Front Axle 4 Wheel Drive Actuator Replacement 4x4 Dodge Ram




What do you think about this video?

bmwhaley98: Something I would suggest is making sure that your vacuum lines are cleared of any fluids. I thought it was weird that after about 20,000 miles the 4wd was starting to go out again. And after removing the vacuum lines, i inspected them for cracks and pin holes, and found nothing. I then preceded to wash them out, and i found a milky white-ish oily substance in them. And after clearing them, the 4wd worked again just like it came off the show room floor.

Yamaha Rider: perfect test at the end hahah

Kyle Dupont: it was low diff fluid that had a paste like consistency which prevented the arm to slide back and fourth. cleaned it and topped it off and it works again

Kyle Dupont: any body know how much vaccum should be there? I have -10 psi on each line depending on if its in 4wd or 2 and I want to be sure that's enough before I replace that thing. it was working fine until it got cold outside

Edward Yasko: Thank you, you helped me more then you know. My hats off to you.

jordon barry: good video

precinct 1 baltimore county residents: U never explained the black clips that go on the fork tips

Richard Cowtails: great job, thx

chuck stowe: Enjoyedit, informative, would have like to have seen closer film age of the removal/install on the axle shaft. Thanks you guys for showing.

Joey Rakas: Thank you for this :) Cummins 4 Life :P

Hayden Thayer: Could you do a video of the vacuum line going from the transfer case to the axle? 

Dajuan Seabrooks: I'm doing this right now, however I do not know where the large vacuum hose connects to. When I got underneath the truck the large rubber hose was not connected to anything. 

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?
