So the new axle is on. Pretty straight forward following directions.

Take it for test drive and it looks like it wants to pop off again. If you look in the original picture you see three colors on the spline. Doesn't it look like its been riding with some of the splines exposed?

Anyway, I'm at a loss. Do I need to take it apart again and get it to catch again???

From what I see in the picture, the snap ring isn't in place and the axle wasn't in all the way. Are you sure there isn't a bent A-arm or the frame? Have you hit anything HARD lately?
Are the wheel bearings good? Something isn't letting that axle go in the whole way.

What axel did you buy and did it come with a new spring ring? When you installed did it snap in place?
I know on rzr's there have been some issues with after market spring rings not holding the axel in.
As Monkeywrench asked did you do any damage lately that could have caused another problem.
You can try to re-seat it as is but you'll prob. have to start over.

Monkey-that's the old axle and the way I found it. Bearings are good and no bent a arm.

Gary- aftermarket axle with new circllip.

Jim. I'm actually a member there. Did not see that post. And I think that's exactly what's happening with mine!

I did not hear a snap ( as the circllip grabbed). But I yanked it and it did not pop out. It was clean and I lubed with anti seize. Will try one more time and then do what the last poster did. Move the diff 1/16" towards right or passenger side.

Sounds like polaris had a template problem with the machine that drills holes!!!!

Does this look like it popped out recently? I think its been like that since day one based on the erosion of the exposed splines.

I think I've pulled my axles out and they looked like that. I'll have to see if I have any pics. Ok I found some pics of my Cats axles, one is new and one is old, And I think I'm wrong. the old axles splines look almost as nice as the new ones. Here's the pics.

Here's a pic of one of mine on the cRaZR4 just hanging there. It didn't pop out with out some good hard yanks. When they pop in there they don't usually just fall out. I've pulled 4 or 5 and 2 I ended up cutting the bands on the boot cause I yanked so hard I pulled the axle apart and had to use a blind bearing puller from harbor freight to get the rest out of the diff. All I would say is slam it in there and see if it pops in there. If you yank on it and it don't just slide out you got it seated.

Thanks miyles.!! Your right - both shafts looks like new on the diff side.

I'm going to pick up a new circllip and if necessary move the diff over 1/16". One way or another I'm going to make that shaft stick!!!

when reinstalling an axle shaft I make sure the splines and the clip have a good coating of antiseize on them and the clip opening is on the bottom and a love tap from my brass hammer.

New c clips good idea.
Tap with plastic hammer to get seated good idea.
Move front diff. BAD IDEA

Could not find new circlips. FYI- bike town in Austintown, Ohio has nothing as far as parts go for polaris goes. Nor sure why they sell them........ Thier main line seems to be Harley's.

Will try re-install Saturday. Without moving diff. If it doesn't work Gary is coming over to show me what I'm doing wrong.

Right Gary???
