Hi there. Check the CV shaft and see if the retainer clip is on the end of the splines. If the retainer clip is missing, then the clip fell off inside the transmission. Get a flashlight and a pair of needle nose pliers and see if you can fish out the retainer. If the retainer is on the CV shaft, then the thrust bearing inside the transmission may be damaged. If you are unable to install the CV shaft then I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
