Front locker plug

Post by drdfblackm » Wed Apr 03, 2019 12:47 am

I posted this over at Facebook as well, so please excuse double post if you have seen it.

So I have a 2011 PW. My front axle locker plug is broken. This appears to happen often. Oddly enough my lockers both still work just fine. I am going to service the front axle and I figured I might as well fix it properly. So can anyone tell me how the plug on the top of the axle is sold? I can't find it in any diagrams. Mine is broken on the axle side. So I would need to probably pull the axles and gears and replace it....but again....cannot find anything but the actuator. I just need the fixed plug on top of the axle.

Any additional info needed I would be more than happy to give. Hopefully I am explaining this well enough.

Thank you for your help.

You said it happens often, but yours is the first one I've heard of so far. How many others have you experienced?

It's only sold complete with the actuator, however it could be replaced separately if it was available by itself.
Here are some pictures of a rear locker actuator that I have, the plug should be the same as the front for 2005-2013.

I've tried searching for the numbers on my connector to no avail.

The rest of this info is pretty useless since the part isn't available, unless you can find a used one.

To disassemble, start by sliding the seal retainer back on the wires.

Then slide out the seal.

Use a pair of needle nose pliers or forceps to pull out the terminal lock plate.

Use a pick tool to release the lock tabs for each terminal.
The terminals are gold plated.

Good info.

People forget to unplug them when dropping the front axle. Assume that is what happened to mine. Mine was broke when I got it.

Maybe you could try contacting AAM to see if they can help you. The harness connector is made by Molex (MX150) but I can't find anything on their site for an O-ring sealed housing. You could buy Molex #33482-4001 and RTV or epoxy it in your housing.
