you will have to remove the cir-clip to get full range of motion to roll the new bearings into place.

if you haven't already, its usually a lot easier to remove the axle from the nuckle and disconnect the inner constant velocity joint by removing the torx bolts (i think about 6) around the joint so you can separate the whole drive shaft and bearings from the car.
