look at my past posts..! I went through this s*** this past august when I redid mine! except one of mine got jammed into the gearbox and then WOULD NOT COME OUT!. USE THE OLD CIRCLIP FROM THE OLD STOCK BMW AXLE!...and make sure it is in the twelve oclock position..RICKNA is correct. And DONT POUND IT IN!...gently tab and havesomeone watch to see if it moves into the gearbox...you dont want to knock a gear outta place in the transfercase gearbox. Lemme know how it goes..been there done that!
