I read this to my wife and she said that you are pussy whipped and said that you should Man up and let Peter do the repair work. He shouldn't have to pay anybody else to do his corrective work.

I would look in to it right away, sometimes the pinion nut will come loose and cause the seal to fail. The end result can be ring and pinion failure.

If the clip came out there probably would habve been more damage than the two lines, maybe the clip was never there. The clip should'nt be able to make it past the piston skirt without more damage.
