YOUR EVERY NEED

Look at the fine print on the box, with a a few exceptions duralast is made in China. You might get lucky but I only try and buy non-essential parts from stores like that. Wiper blades , bulbs, mud flaps etc.
When doing car repair, buy a quality part the first time and fix it once.
Scotty Kilmer suggests dipping the inner CV joint in grease to hold the snap ring in place and make it easier to push into the differential but he calls it the transmission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH98nX8fb6M
Took Marilyn for a test drive and turned around before I even got off the street. It still sounds like a blender knocking around ice cubes which makes me think someone drained the differential while it was on blocks in my backyard for a month.
Most clicking issues, I have dealt with; were cv axle related but I suppose, anything is possible. Have you pinpointed the sound and is it coming, from the same axle you replaced? It would be nice, to have the car on a lift or jack stands; to have a helper, put the car in gear and you be able, to pinpoint, where the sound is coming from and then, decide what might be the issue. To isolate the noise; you could disconnect, the new axle from the transmission and see if the sound goes away, when you put the car in gear with the car lifted up off the ground. For the less expensive, rebuilt or nex axles; I wouldn't be surprised, if there was a quality control issue, right out of the box (so, don't assume; the new axle is fine, not ignore it as a possible source of the problem). Was this clicking issue; there, to being with and the reason, you replaced the axle, trying to address this issue?
I replaced the axle just because of the torn CV boot and there was some rattling noise. Now it’s just clicking like someone filed down the splines of the right side of the transaxle while I had disassembled for a month on jack stands in my backyard.
Many times, you need the weight, stress and load, to get the noises to make themselves known. We also, sometimes; have someone drive next to you and see if they can hear the noise, where it is coming from (in a deserted parking lot or away from traffic area).
I have a 98 Beetle that is having some issues. When I start the car, about half the time it won't start on the first try. I have to press the gas pedal while I turn the key to get it to start. I am also having issues where it hesitates upon pressing the gas. I actually almost got in a wreck...

A lot of these codes came up before. Replaced vacuum hose to brake booster(split), cleaned TB and cleaned TB connector. Well they came back after a week. Thought it was fixed. Thinking the TB connector bad or the TB. Opinions?
