Questions about bad VCs...
Hey guys, so I've determined I have got a bad VC in my 249 (tires squealing/binding while turning, etc) but I like my 249 and plan to keep it and soon just replace the VC (will probably pull case, so I can also replace seals too). However, in the mean time while driving with a bad VC are there going to be any other negative consequences, or will it wear anything else out until its fixed? Also, since its bad, does that mean I won't have properly functioning 4x4 until its fixed?
Since I also have a '97, i was planning on removing the front drive shaft to stop the binding and squealing when turning until I fix the VC, but I noticed I have the cv-style front drive shaft, and was wondering what the process was to removing it, and if it would have any adverse reactions from removing it, like losing fluid, letting in dirt, etc.
