Sounds like the splines and or the "C" ring is damaged. Under normal circumstances the axle should snap into place firmly. Remove the axle and examine it. With a little luck only the axle is damaged and you can replace the axle with a rebuilt one.

It is directly under the tranny. you might have to jack it up to get to it but realistically you can reach with without a jack, it's just a bit of a pain. i think its around a 16-18 mm bolt? as soon as you open it the tranny fluid comes out fast so make sure you have something to catch it in.
