2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Need help finding snap ring (circlip)

2003 AWD VUE 3.0L

I need help finding the snap ring for the right side (passenger) CV axle. The new one does not come with the clip and I can't find the correct one online although I can find the one for the other VUE's with a different transmission. The old clip was broken so I really shouldn't reuse it. The clip goes on the intermediate shaft and then the axle spindles slide over.

Thanks for any help you can give.

It appears to be a very generic part.

The Saturn part number is 22759191, and it interchanges with GM part number 90121202. In other words, the two parts are identical despite having different part numbers.

It is item #4 in this diagram.

Thanks for the reply.

I've found that diagram and part before but it says it's for the CVT which I don't have. Also, when I find that part online and then check it for compatibility with my VUE the websites will say the part is not compatible. Will it work anyway?

I see what you're talking about, but you can disregard the top line that says CVT. The diagram lists the parts for all the different transmissions so it is correct.

If you can't find the part measure the snap ring groove ID and width.
Go to
www.mcmaster.com/#retaining-rings/=1azznv4
and find a ring that fits those groove dimensions. It is probably metric.

2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: Need help finding snap ring (circlip)

Looking through that site a little more I was able to find parts that looked more like mine plus the site said the parts would fit the 2003 VUE. I just went ahead and ordered the clips that are listed as fitting plus the clip that you listed just in case. Once they arrive I'll let you know if any of them fit. Hoping to get this CV axle back on so I can get the car inspected. Besides this the car is running great for a vehicle with over 315,000 miles.
