What is this that fell out of my rear output shaft?

While replacing the rear output shaft seal, this fell out. What is it? I don't see the rest of it.

I was replacing a recently installed seal as it kept leaking even after the install. I have a new slip yoke too, but was surprised to find this inside.

That is about half of a retaining clip for a u Joint cap

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

If it was inside the transfer case then it's one of the c-clip retainer things on the output shaft. Or half of it, at least. Hard to tell how big it is in your picture.

Yep, that looks like one of the locking rings from inside the transfer case. They are used to hold the bearings onto the shafts.
Remove the rear tail housing from your transfer case and see if it is the one that holds the rear bearing to the shaft.

I'm with Awesome and Cobra on this one.

Considering your recent issue, i guess that it is indeed from within the transfer case (without knowing the size scale).

Here a photo of the size. I'm going to drop the housing and see what's going on.

1-5/16"? Yeah definitely a bearing/gear retainer clip from the output shaft on the transfer case. Pulling the tailhousing off won't really help you, you're going to have to split the case.

Why not? I took the housing off and it looks like it goes on the outside of the bearings. There appears no way for it to have come from behind the bearings and inside the transfer case.

I'm assuming when i took off the seal, the oil running down carried it out.
