    After finding my driver side hub not in free last night I can't turn it into lock. Is the hub fried? Can I fix it without having to buy a new one? She is parked until I can fix it and parked is bad.

    Thanks,

    Unbolt the hub to see why it's not moving.
    Maybe if you clean it put it back together it will work.
    That happened to me before.

    So I got the hub apart, finally, and the hub and wheel bearings are dusted and the brake assy where the hub goes in is cracked all the way around. I am suprised that I made it home in one piece. Damn punks /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
