you shouldnt have to tap on it everytime you want to engage 4x4, the reason we say tap on it is to knock sh** loose that may be encrusted inside. I can probably say that the magnet was broke before you "tapped" on the motor, if it wasnt then you broke it yourself by tapping it to hard. Tapping on the 4x4 motor is perfectly fine there are many memebers here that had the same problem (4x4 wont engage but they hear a clicking sound) and they tapped on the 4x4 motor and now their 4x4 works all the time. Also about that price....did you ask if vasalean was included? beacause your getting raped if that price doesnt include installation, the motor should only be ~$150, so that price that you were quoted probably included installation.FLMountainMan said:Well i am having the same problem but tapping the motor made 4x4 work. Problem is that i am not about to get down there and tap it every time i want to get into 4x4. So i took mine apart today and the magnet in the case was in 50 pieces. I would not recommend tapping the motor. This site shows how to take apart and clean the motor. I will be buying a new one when i could have just cleaned mine. The dealership down here wants $370. Anyone have a used one?
:stupidRavenTBK said:Quick tip:
Once you do get it working, be sure to exercise it EVERY DAY or else it will seize up on you again. It kinda works out because it gives you a valid excuse to tell your wife/gf where you're been for the past five hours even though you got off work at 2:30. :thumbup
