I have a 2009 Cabrio, the passenger side axle looks as if someone replaced the seal already, and I swapped it again with a madness seal. My question is I don't recall the snap ring being on the end of the axle, I really didn't look, but when you grab the cup that is closest to the transmission the axle has movement by hand. Shouldn't that portion of the cv axle be solid to the transmission? I thought the cup housed the roller bearings that slid in and out with suspension travel. I am curious if the movement is normal, if I remember right when I removed it it was solid. Could I possibly be missing the snap ring?
