    Default 4by4 wont disengage?

    Drive an old v6 manual 4by4 (with the leavers) , went down sani this week in low 1 gear mostly then high 4 the rest, get to customs and it does not want to disengage, after trying a few times, I put it in reverse and that seemed to work.

    Should I be worried? What do I need to do? Please help?

    Yip, it can be normal. My Disco 1 v8 would often do the same and reversing and ''unwinding'' the diffs would clear it. It was recommended practice in one of the handbooks to reverse a number of meters after using the CDL.
    There is no such thing as inclement weather, only poor selection of clothing.... or Vehicle
