  1. step : Removing the Skid Plate (1:10)
    • Remove the four 15 mm bolts that are securing the skid plate.
    • Once those are out, remove the skid plate
  2. step : Un-plugging the Actuator (1:39)
    • Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry up on the little latch and unplug the actuator.
  3. step : Removing the old Actuator (1:50)
    • Using a pair of large slip joint pliers, grab the bolt and unscrew counterclockwise. Once you've got it started, it should come right out.
  4. step : Installing the new Actuator (2:40)
    • Work in reverse of the installation process. There may be some grease that drips out-make sure you have a Teflon Coating, and that you get it straight in.
    • When pulling it in, don't pull too tight-you don't want to strip the plastic threads.
  5. step : Replacing the Skid Plate (3:16)
    • While holding the skid plate up, replace the four 15 mm bolts.
    • Tighten these bolts up to 30 or 35 foot-pounds so they don't go anywhere.

Not the problem :(
Turns out this wasn't our 4WD's problem either (most likely the encoder motor again), but we replaced it anyway since we had it. It fit perfectly and with the video was a snap to install.

Works flawlessly, great price.
Very easy installation with the videos. There are so many non-mechanical issues with a GMC 4wd system that you can easily address yourself with some research and Youtube. This fit the bill. Thanks 1Aauto.com.

Part arrived fast, easy install. But I am still at a lost to why my 4wd is not working. I changed the switch on the dash, actuator motor, and this part on this review. Even check the fuses, made sure I had good ground and still nothing

Does this actuator control both 4H and 4L? Mine will shift into 4H but not 4L.
Marvin L on Jun 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it controls all 4wd functions. If this doesn't fix problem there are only 4 components. Actuator (reasonably priced), transfer case motor (pricey), dash electric control switch (very reasonable and easy to replace), and finally computer 4wd modular control (very pricey). Mine would jump from 2wd to 4wd on its own. Repair shop couldn't determine the cause. So I started replacing parts front to back. Luckily I found the problem at the dash control switches.
What size thread is it on 4x4 actuator?
Justin W on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't have the exact measurements. Our parts are designed to be exact replacements for what came with the vehicle, so as long as your year, make, and model match up with our listing, these will definitely fit and function just like the original. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
