Default Sportsman 850xp 4x4 issues

Hey everyone, I have a 2010 Sportsman 850xp and have issues with 4x4 mode. Icon shows on cluster, if I have the quad on jacks with 4x4 engaged, front tires dont rotate at same rotation as the rears, and I can grab a front wheel and stop it from rotating while in 4x4 mode. Anyone have ideas what the issue might be? I changed the fluid which didnt help, any input is appreciated. I noticed it what I took it out in the snow in 4x4 And only the rear wheels were loosing traction

you might have a broken roller cage in the front gear case which stops the awd from engaging thos happens a lot to the newer Polaris models when the awd is turned on while the rear tires are spinning.
