Hello all-

I am replacing a failed passenger inner CV boot on my '07 manual FXT.

The manual turbo Foresters have a special axle that is specific to this vehicle only (manual FXT).

In disassembling the inner joint, it appears there is no retention ring/clip to keep the assembly together. Typically on Subarus there is a clip that needs to be removed before pulling the axle out of the inner CV stub.

Does anyone know if what I have is missing something? There is nothing in place from keeping the inner CV from pulling right out of the casing. I understand that the axle wouldn't necessarily have tension on it in that way, but there is almost always some sort of retention clip or c clip in every axle I've ever rebuilt.

There doesn't appear to be any provisioning for a clip in the housing:

However, this green piece came out of the old boot, but doesn't appear it would hold anything in place.

Thanks for your assistance.

I did mine earlier this year (turbo/passenger side) and I dont recall any clips within the cup. The only clip I had to remove was one found at the end of the shaft which kept the rollers in place, which altogether goes into the cup.

Awesome, thank you- that's exactly what I needed to know. Most/all other Subaru axles have a clip in the cup that holds the joint in there so it threw me off.
