Big Grin 99 Tracker. Right CV coupling pulled out of housing
4wd quit,, looked under front to see the right side joint pulled at least 1 1/2 out of housing. What holds this in differential ?? Questional damage to this point.

RE: 99 Tracker. Right CV coupling pulled out of housing
Nothing holds that side in (inside the front housing). It slips in, and then held in place once the housing is bolted down, or you reinstall your strut back on the control arm (depending on which way you removed it. Either is fine)

I’m willing to but you have a broken top mount on your front housing. It’s an aluminium flange with 2 bolts that is prone to cracking. Under heavy torque (usually reverse+4 low) the housing wants to move up/twist and it will break. Once it’s broken this same stress will cause it move around and your CV can pop out, you may also hear the driveshaft rubbing.

I checked the housing and mount,, the the three bolts involved with mount is tight with no cracks. Mounting is tight. I have found a reference to a circle clip on axle to retain in differential. Without disassembling I can freely push axle in an out of differential

I think it be 11.. I got a screenshot attached (not my part) of the shaft assembly of a 99 that moves freely in an out
The illustration or me could be different

UPDATE: Drained differential, inspection of lube produced no metal grindings,, fished out of case a few pieces which were remenants of cir-clip. Project on hold until weather warms. So far to find clip at part stores and GM has been futile. Over & Out

RE: 99 Tracker. Right CV coupling pulled out of housing
finding circlips is not easy. metric

most folks buy whole axle kit and do the whole thing. (after all the labor, not wanting second play ,soon)
but you might get lucky,.

the rings are (snap) are very tough case hardened spring steel (no beer can metal as sold from jokers in China)
