What is IWE check valve?
In this way, what is an IWE?
For the uninitiated, Ford's Integrated Wheel End (IWE) system is what locks and unlocks the front hubs when you change back and forth from 2WD and 4WD.
Similarly, how does Ford IWE work? The IWE system consists of a vacuum reservoir, IWE vacuum solenoid, IWE hubs, vacuum hoses and a check valve. The IWE hubs engage the front wheel hubs to the front axle shafts or disengage them when the 4WD mode is turned off. That DISENGAGES the front hubs from the front axle shafts.
Furthermore, where is the IWE solenoid located?
IWE Located behind the battery on the firewall.
How does vacuum 4x4 work?
The vacuum motor, which is mounted on the right side of the differential, moves an axle clutch gear that engages the right-side axle to the differential. The motor diaphragm uses two vacuum hoses—one to pull and the other to push—each controlled by a separate solenoid that's commanded by the GEM.
