squeeking noise when locking hubs
a question from the German forum member.
I love my 08 e350 V8 triton Quadvan 4x4.
All went well. Used it in 2 offroad holidays. Last time about 3 months ago.
Nearly every weekend I drive to its garage to move the van. It is not a daily driver.
Last time (it was quite cold outside - about -2 C -) I thought it might be a good idea to lock the hubs to get the axle moving a little time. I did not engage 4x4. Just locked the hubs.
When I started rolling I realized a quite loud squeeking noise. I guess from the axle at the driver side. It came faster/more frequent when accelerating and vice versa.
When switching the hubs to FREE it disappeared immediately.
Any Ideas about what that could be? Anything I can tell our mechanics here? I myself am not capable. The conversion is quite new. Drove about 6000 miles with it.
Thanks for any advice or opinion!
