Question ABS, Brake and 4X4 Lights on

Team,

Just got these three lights (ABS, Brake and 4X4) coming on at the same time twice in the last three hours.

After the lights come on, the X3 is dragging... Like the rear wheel brakes are on and holding the vehicle back. Just noticed an old post from 2009 where there is an actuator that fails and it is causing this behaviour. My question is what can I do to get solid proof to the dealer so that I can claim it under warranty.

I have the X3 for a little over a week and got 90 days warranty when buying from a dealer.

Thanks in advanced!

I ordered a new gear off amazon to fix it, going to try it myself when it gets in.

Hi Joe!
Did the actuator gear fix your issue?
