Something "popped" on the CV shaft while removing the steering knuckle. How to get it back in?

I removed the steering knuckle to replace the wheel bearing and while doing so I "popped" the CV shaft. I cannot get it back into where ever it popped from, to get it all back together. Any ideas? I tried hitting it and moving i all around and pushing in. UGH!

There is no tranny fluid leaking. Car is an '02 automatic.

I'm not too familiar with the CV shafts on an automatic. Was it the drivers or passenger side?

Nevermind. I figured it out. I had to take off the clamp for the inner boot, pull the half shaft out, and pull the rubber boot back. Somehow it had popped in front of the tripod bearings preventing it from sliding back into the slot. DOH!
