I am replacing the cv axles on a 2005 Ion3. Is there a circlip on the trans output shaft to lock the cv axle in position. I found this circlip on the passenger side but not the drivers side.
Would this part (circlip) normally be included with the new cv axle?
Is there a stub shaft on the drivers side that eliminates the need for this circlip?
GM doesn't sell this item anymore and no one seems to have it, probably why it was missing from my car!
I need to know if it is required and if so where can I find one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

I believe both half shafts are the same, so it should have a clip. The new ones should have the clip, but I'd be worried where the old one went.
