My car has 168 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.
Hi - the transmission end of the axle has a "compression snap ring" that must be "popped" hard back into the case - being careful that the splines are correctly lined up first. For assistance if you are concerned about "technique" or damaging the transmission, I recommend an axle replacement service by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
