      Loss of drive

      2005 V70 with a manual transmission. I was about to pull out of a parking lot, gave it a little gas in first, then I felt a pop and lost all drive. The transmission will go into any gear I put it in, but none actually work. If I grab the driver side axle, I feel a vibration while the car is idling. Currently waiting for my ride to pick me up. Any ideas on what it could be?

      Doubt it’s the clutch, as it is a new clutch, maybe only 150 miles on it. Also, I wasn’t getting in it real hard, and I didn’t smell the clutch. Additionally, the axles only have 150 miles on them as well.

      If an axle got overextended during removal and replacement, it could cause the joint to fail.

      The driver's side axle can also pop out if was not properly seated.

      I’m hoping this is the case, especially seeing as how I can feel a vibration and wobble in the axle. Currently waiting for a tow truck. I can look at it more once it is in the driveway. I was planning on getting it in the air anyway, as my new drilled and slotted rotors come today.

      Thankfully, this was the case. Driver side axle was popped out. Tomorrow I will be changing brakes and rotors, so I will use that time to seat the axle properly. Any tips? Apparently I didn’t do it right the first time....

      Give it a good wack in. Should click when the circlip snaps in. You’ll also be able to see that there’s no lip seal wear surface exposed anymore.

      Should I just give it a good whack on the wheel side of the axle, being careful not to mushroom the splines?

      Grease the splines and just use inertia to clip it in. Try to not "whack" it on the other side since you are risking damaging the CVs.

      If the circlip and splines are greased you should not need to use a hammer. Just forcefully push it onwards generating some momentum along the way. Then stick a pry bar behind it to verify that it’s in there solid.

      Splines are hardened. Use a block of wood between your hammer and the splines though. Or use the block of wood as a hammer.

      Even with the wood, the wheel side splines mushroomed out and won’t fit back into the hub. Additionally, no matter what I do, the axle won’t stay in.

      I tried removing the axle entirely and re-spreading the c clip to make it larger, but still nothing. I even read something in the c70 forum I believe where it’s supposed to be a rounded c clip, not squared, so I added some bevels, and it worked better but I can still pull it out one handed with a beer can grip.
