I have a problem with the 4 wheel drive in my 2000 jeep cherokee

Yesterday the axle broke on the front right side. I replaced it today and now the four wheel drive wont engage. It was working fine before the axle broke. I dont understand is their something else I needed to do after replaceing the axle? please help!

do you have a vacuum disconnect fron axle? if so the vacuum line might have broken off.

Have you removed the differential cover and inspected the gears? And which part of the axle broke the inner axle or the outer axle?
