Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Hi I have put cv axle in many time before, I know some cars you can only pull one axle at a time. Yes c clip came out on both axles, will go in but not all the way, they is about a inch to go . They should go all the in untill it touch diff.

sometimes I have to break out a huge dead blow or a non marring hammer and swing on those a couple of times to get them in its a very tight fit,

you may have to hold it rotate it and maybe put a piece of wood to protect the end while someone hits it
