I have 3 questions about the locking differentials in my G550.

Asked by Apr 16, 2016 at 04:56 PM about the 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G 550

Question type: General

Question 1. Is it harmful to have center and rear locking differentials engaged when driving at 20MPH on a straight road?
Question 2. My car made a sudden clanking sound, and I felt the jolt, too after I disengaged the center and rear locking differentials while the car is in motion at 20 MPH. I am wondering why this happened? How harmful is it to the car?
Question 3. What is the correct way to engage and disengage the locking differentials? Should I have them engaged or disengaged while the car is at rest?
Thank you!

They say you can do it while running down the road but that always sounded lame to me, like do they want to me to ruin this, anything having to do with any kind of drivetrain switching I have either done it while just rolling in nuetral or completely stopped.
