    C Clip Does it wear out ??

    i bought two c clips while doing some work to my ski, and i cant seem to get the new c clips to fall in place. I can get it to sit on the shaft, but then the coupler doesnt slide over it like its supposed to.

    I tried the old one and it goes right to its place.

    Could these C clips wear out and come loose from underneath the shaft coupler ???

    No C-clip's dont wear out, driveshaft's rust, but the the C-clip never wears out, as far as I have seen, I could be wrong tho . The carbon ring does wear. The seal Carrier collar will sometimes get bent or out of shape and that may be the problem? do you have pics?

    Yes they do. Mine wore a groove in it, and wobbled causing cavitation, and ended wearing out the driveshaft groove. A new shaft, and C clip fixed it up like new....(warranty).

    I had a c clip do the same thing but I did not replace it just turned it over so I could go riding. Clip broke ski sunk.
