Default Axle popped out of Front Differential

2013 QX56 front passenger side axle has popped out of the differential about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. I assume the clip needs to be replaced along with the seal and just pop it back in. Has anyone had this issue?

I put the truck on the lift yesterday and the axle has not popped out of the differential but is leaking from the seal. I am going to add fluid and monitor the leak. A seal replacement is probably in the near future.
