I am replacing the CV joints in a Nissan Sentra 1997 MT and have the first axle off, but can't get the replacement axle back in. It's like I can't get the shaft to seat past the snap ring. The FSM calls for a special tool, but several sites and some guy at NAPA told me I shouldn't need that, I should just be able to slide it in, but it won't budge.

Is there something I am missing here?

Nevermind I figured it out. Had to whack it very hard several times with a rubber mallet and it finally clicked into place.
