ok, quick update, I took the actuator off, drained all the oil out of it, sprayed a can of electircal contact cleaner in it, let it dry, put it back together and installed it, works like a charm, so now I have to get a front diff rebuild kit to stop the leaks in the diff. Point is, when the dealer tells you that the $400 part they want to replace is not repairable, it is not always the case (not to put down the honest dealers). because I did this myself I found that the part they wanted to replace was not the problem but my front diff is the main cause, what do you think the odds are that my dealer would have cleaned up the actuator and just repaired the diff for me? I doubt very much he would have, he would have charged me for the actuator, and the diff kit, plus labor. (I know time is money, and safety is a factor to dealer's, I'm just commenting on how I saved money by doing it myself) (I'm rambilin lol sorry)
Anyway I will get a diff rebuild kit, and thanks to the service manual link doorfx sent me shouldn't be too bad of a job!
P.S. Ha in the process I decide to clean the rad (plan on relocating it up by the snorkel) and find a pin hole in it, now to get some stop leak lol
