replacing outer cv joint boot on the front of x5

I am replacing the outer boot on the front and have removed the output shaft out of the hub. I am now at the point were I need to remove a retaining clip in order to slid the cv joint off the shaft to slid on the boot, but I can't seem to find a way to get to the clip. The crack in the boot was detected quickly so there is no damage to the bearings (luckly). Anyone have any info.


I got it fixed thanks for letting me post. Here is the info on how I got help

I looked up a 2002 with 4.4 and the clip is a pressure clip you have to hit it with a hammer to release it I use a dead blow hammer so I dont ruin the cv joint put the axle in a vise with the joint facing down and smack that succer hard it should pop off good luck
