Looking to change the boot for the front upper CV. Looking at this, everything in my mechanical experience tells me there should be a snap ring or circlip on this shaft but I cant seem to find one. I’ve read people talk about using a hammer and knocking a joint off but not sure if it’s the way for the upper CVs or not.

So, before I just put this into my press, is there a ring I need to remove that is avoiding my eyesight abilities?

I know I probably should’ve left the bearings and gate alone.
