Sorry for the newbie question. I was greasing my grease points and noticed my front drive shaft doesn’t turn free.... like my other 4x4s. I verified I’m in H on my Diff shifter .... far bottom right and no lights are on my dash showing I’m in 4x4.

is this normal for a Defender? I did a search but didn’t see anything.

thanks !!!!

Yes, normal. Stock configuration for all Defenders is 4WD all the time.

Under normal driving conditions/on pavement you’re running the transfer case in 4H.

Yep “permanent 4WD” — with center diff unlocked your vehicle is is “all wheel drive” and with it locked it’s in 4WD. Benefit of the LR system is that you can use Low Range with center diff unlocked on good traction level surfaces (like boat ramps) without binding up the drivetrain like you would on part time 4wd systems

jack one of the front wheels up off the ground then you can turn the driveshaft/wheel to access the zerks..
