does the axle shaft( I beleive it is the intermediate shaft that goes all the way into the transmission, not the CV axle part) need a retaining clip on it ?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Pulling out the CV axle assembly on 2000 Pontiac gp and the entire axle assembly from inside the transmission came out with the CV assembly. :Looked like the axle shaft from inside the trans should have a retainer clip to hold it in place. It must of popped off--or was there one there before?

They axles have sort of spring detent and they pop out of the transmission if you pull hard enough.

do I need to put a new retainer clip on the end of the axle that is in the differential ?

No new clip that I'm aware of. Try pushing it back in and pull on it a little. You might feel it snap into place. -- It's been quite a while since I removed an axle but that how I remember it.
