Can someone point me to a link online where I can buy some good snap-ring pliers that work with the RDX? The ones I have found are too big to fit in the holes. I tried making them smaller but they cant get close enough together to use them.

Just head down to your local Sears and get a pair of their small retaining ring pliers.

Try something like Craftsman #47383. I don't have mine sitting here in front of me to have the exact part number, but that's where I got mine and they work perfectly.

It's probably obvious, but make sure your cone washers look like this: ()().

Could be a stripped plastic diff nut also. I had the same problem, replaced the plastic nut and it hasn't loosened since. I think mine was just worn out though.

Default snap ring pliers

Call Clarissa or Chris at rcmadness in Enfield Connecticut 860-741-6501 they had some xtra small snap ring plier.

They work great and are sold as set four types...I dont recall the price but it was very reasonable.

Just to confirm that this is a common thing, I too had the same problem.
Diff would back way out, because the C clip was catching. Rebuilt, put a new clip in and haven't had a problem since!

anytime i feel a tight spot in my diffs i usually just change the c-clip. usually fixes it.

Ya the ones Jamie mentioned from rcmadness are perfect size, i think they come in a set of regular and reversed for a cheap price, only way to go.

This may prove valuable for those who do not use the standard diff rebuild kit (as the regular kit has the ring but the ceramic thrust kit does not). The xray diff c-clips are the same as the corally c-clips. They are sold seperately and come in a set of like 10 for $5.75

Got to be one of the most reasonable prices xray has for a part.

The Cir-clip that holds the thrust bearing and washers inside the diff half.
