Anyone know the procedure for changing them & the difficulty level?
Mine failed for the 2nd winter & wound up needing to be towed out of a snowbank
Thankyou

Go to Warn manual hubs, don't repair the vacuum hubs. They will fail again.

Http://www.warn.com

Part number 60247 for the Sportage. Can be ordered from Advance Auto Parts for about $103 for the pair. 3 day delivery.

Any competent mechanic can install them in under an hour. The hubs include comprehensive installation instructions.

..While manual hubs are probably an absolute requirement for serious off roaders, those who refrain from rock and dirt and extreme climbs might appreciate the convenience of automatic operation provided by the Warn automechanical #61918.

Very reliable .
Replacemnt is easy too but you must be sure that they come with the complete complements of parts:
-hub
-cam assembly
-spindle nut
-spindle lock
Replacement instructions here to give you an idea.

My Sporty have a noise in the front right tire after I used the 4x4 (L or H) or when I drive over 30 miles in the city. Sound like Clank, clank

Problem Hubs? It's automatic

What transmission oil and motor oil I can use in my sporty?

Thanks! :thumbsup:
