A four-wheel drive 1995 Ford F-150 pickup came equipped with either automatic locking front hubs or manually locking front hubs. Manually locking hubs require the owner to get out of the vehicle and turn a knob in the center of the wheel with their hands to lock the front axles and then engage four-wheel drive mode. If these manual locking hubs fail, then you won’t be able to lock the hubs to engage four-wheel drive. To fix that, you need to change out the hubs, which takes around an hour or so to do.
