its inside, it has to compress on the axle shaft to get past the groove it sits in inside the trans if you have to pry dont rest the bar on the seal

You can stick a large screwdriver between the axle and the transmission to pry it out. And yes, those clips and be a pain. Be persistent grasshopper!! Fight the power!!
