I just replaced my drivers side driveaxle on my 89 mx6 manual trans. I took it out for a drive the the drive axle popped out of the trans, I pushed it back in and drove a bit and it popped out again.
Is anyone familiar with this problem. I think it might have something to do with the retaining clip.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely it is the end clip. either it broke or who ever replaced it forgot to put it back on. When I had my axle shaft inspected by FIRESTONE, they forgot to put the clip back on and for a few days my axle would just pop off just the way u described.

Hope this helps you.

I took the driveaxle back out today and checked the clip, it was there.
I guess I just didn't push it in hard enough. I messed around with it a bit today a pushed on it as hard as I could. It still doesn't feel like it's in their very securely. I test drove it though and so far so good. I'll guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks for the response.

When you push it in, you should here a somewhat loud snap. That indicates that the clip is locked in place. If you did here it then you should be fine.
