Default How to Disconnect AWD

Ok I have a 93 Impreza and Im trying to elimnate the sound I have coming from the rear of the car. Is there any easy to make the car FWD or so the back diff is not spinnning or working. Im trying to tell if I have noise coming from the diff.

I have heard some people talk about something to do with a fuse?

Do you have a manual or automatic transmission?

If you have an auto, you can put a fuse in an empty slot in the fuse box to tell the center diff to put all the power to the front. The rear diff will still turn as its still connected to the wheels, there just wont be any engine power going to it.

If you have a manual transmission you are kind of SOL as it will take a welded center diff and removing parts to make this work.

No kidding..

I see converting it RWD.

How come you can't just get it fixed rather than trying to convert it to FWD?

good point no argument here...question answered...I too agree with bearings cause if it was your diff you'd just drain the oil check it and add fresh royal purple diff oil..good to go!!!!
