Default NEED HELP ASAP! C-Clip POPPED LOOSE.. WHERE FROM?? On 2018 STi

PLEASE HELP!!!

While doing a Header/ Up-pipe installed today on my 2018 STi. An I had a
C-Clip pop loose but I canít identify where itís from? ... I had the engine slightly jacked up following the Up-pipe instructions and when I lowered the engine this C-clip popped loose from the driver Side but Iím not quite sure where it sprung a loose from? My first thoughts where a bushing or control arm but Iím having trouble locating were. Can someone please help me identify where and from what the clip came loose from. If anyone at all can identify where this clip belongs I would really appreciate the help!!!!

I would suspect maybe the steering rack input shaft possibly

Are you sure it didn't come off of the jack? maybe the wheel on that side?

I will Dbl. Check the jack but I don't think so.

Where located on the St. Rack are you thinking possible location from where it could of popped form?

I'm thinking your first thought is a very good possibility, due to i was under the car when it sprung loose and that area was my first thought of a possibility!

So if anyone has any other suggestions on where this Retainting Ring Clip goes please tell me . I've looked, Looked & Looked through the STI service manual and I can't find where it should be located. All of the clips on the steering rack are enclosed inside CV Boots ECT. and there is no way those could have popped loose with out some disassembly of the Steering Rack. PLEASE ANYONE! I NEED ur HELP!!

So I did a thero examination of the undercarriage wile completing my Up-Pipe/Exst.Manifold install. Since it was already up off the ground. But I did not perform the "Wiggle-Wiggle,Stroke,Shake Test at that time. So o will go do that right now. . . . I did take the car on a decent test drive and I did not hear or feel anything unnatural more so than normal. But I will report my findings fallowing my "Wiggle-Wiggle,Stroke,ShakeShake"Test.

BTW. Thank-You for Your Response!
