Would simple changing the locking hubs to manual fix 4wd problem? Don't you still need to engage the transmission to get 4wd?

Asked by Dec 01, 2016 at 09:27 AM about the 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The four wheel drive stopped working, we brought it to the mechanic and said by simple changing the hubs that would fix the problem. I.E. would give us four wheel drive without needing to turn switch on dash. Doesn't the transmission need to get engaged as well?
