so I think my kia is stuck in 4wd. The light isn't on but its having a hard time turning. When I crank the wheel in any direction and try to go forward my rear tires will slip a little. Also when I go into reverse and turn either direction I hear a thunk coming from the rear then when I go into drive and start to turn in any direction it thunks again. It only does that while turning. If I reverse while going straight it doesn't make the sound. What the heck is wrong with my sportage? I did just replace the front passenger wheel baring and can't afford much else. Thanks for any advice.

The 4WD on these cars is engaged when the computer detects wheel slip. If you have just had a bearing replaced then I would be looking to see if a sensor on that wheel has been damaged or not put back properly etc.
