Re Jeep Liberty

My 2006 Liberty squeals tires when I maneuver in our parkade.
A fellow stopped me the other day and said to take it out of 4 wheel drive.
I informed him that it was not in four wheel drive.
He said it had to be and was quite arrogant as his last remark was I am just ignorant!
If I am correct there is no disconnect to the front axles.
Am I correct?

Years ago I had an S15 Jimmy that had a sliding collar in the front diff to prevent this problem.

Sounds like you either have it in 4 WD or in positive traction mode. It may be stuck in 4WD.

I did a little searching and found this on the Jeep forum.

Liberty's don't have locking hubs. They are engaged at all times.
So just as I suspected the cause of the tire scuffing.
I also discovered I can make the tires squeal by just turning the wheel on our over polished parkade floor.
