trouble installing nissan axle.

help...i am installing new drive axles on my 1997 nissan maxima. I got the old ones out ok and am having trouble putting the drivers side back on. it has a snap ring on the end and the manual says give it a sharp push to set the snap ring.

i have the axle in place and started the splines into the transaxle but cant seem to get enough leverage to push it home.

any ideas?

thanks

Ed

small wooden block and.....A REALLY BIG HAMMER

All jokes aside......

It is perfectly acceptable to knock it in, provided the threaded end is protected from damage.....Either with a wood block, or by running the axle nut on flush with the end.
