DAIHATSU TERIOS WHEEL PROBLEM

1998 Daihatsu Terios • 178,000 miles

I was driving my car in the normal 2 wheel drive mode when I heard a loud bang come from under the car and the car stopped so I got out the car and looked underneath it and found a ball bearing I got back in the car and put it in gear all I got was a really loud rattling noise from the front end of the car and the car wont move so I put the car into 4 wheel drive mode and it drove perfect gears change normally to it just wont drive in the normal 2 wheel drive mode just rattles. Does anyone know what could be wrong with it any help would be much appreciated
