Second Reply Looking for large "C" clip shown in image 11

Thought I had the right part from previous reply but ended up being wrong part. In picture #11 it shows the removal of the large wire"C" clip that holds the inner axle cv joint race into the front differential.


Can't seem to get the part # from Cat or any where else.

It's a wire retaining clip measuring 2 1/4 " in diameter.

1996 Bearcat 454.

OK, I'm new here and this is my first question. I replaced an outboard boot today but I could and did not see anyway to disassemble the outboard end of the axle so I could clean and lube. How does that thing come apart? I know it was put together someway, but I didn't want to force anything not knowing exactly how it comes apart. I saw a post above where the guy said he did it, so I know it is possible. HELP!! And thanks. Got more to do.

I don't know diddly, but sometime when my quad is older, ill have to learn. I think the axles are held into the diffs with some kinda "circlip". I looked on you tube and ya just givem a helluva yank and they pop out. then, when re-installing them, givem a couple slaps with a rubber mallet. I "think" its all about the compressable circlip that retains them in the diff. Hope it helps ya, lots of smart experienced guys on here, but sometimes ya gotta do a lil homework on yur own. good luck, lemmme know if ya got it man....

Thanks and yes I got the axle out of the differential and disassembled the inboard bearing after removing both boots, but I need to disassemble the outboard bearing on the spindle end to clean and lube. There are not any c clips or snap rings visable, but that thing was put together somehow. There may be an internal c clip like in the diff. I just need to no before I tear up something. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Check this one out:

It helped me out. I just finished taking mine apart today too, just needed a couple good taps on the inner race. Just don't use a steel punch. Now I'm not sure how to tell if they are worn out and need to be replaced or if they are good to be put back together...

If the pics were posted using photobucket there is nothing we can do. Try contacting the original poster.

Used this guide today to replace all my boots. Helped a ton! On the back left axle, I couldn't get it to disconnect from the differential, so I cut the boot off and took the big circle clip out and just removed that part. Granted I couldn't clean the entire axle as well as I wanted since I left a part on the machine, but at least the boot isn't cracked anymore.
