05 mazda 6 axle coming out of bearing
We had this axle shaft installed by a mechanic and it is now coming out of the center bearing that joins both halves of the drive shaft on passenger side. It is the outer half, closest to the brakes and wheel that is coming out of place and when looking can see about half the splines exposed and coming out of the center bearing

My first question, what is actually holding this shaft in place, besides the wheel, its upper and lower control arms, steering parts and brakes, wheel brearings. Many of these parts were replaced when worn or rubber was broken and with so many new parts, they are all in place as well as the outer tie rod end to steering

Second question is, could the carrier bearing be worn out and mechanic didnt tell us it needed to be replaced at same time the outer half shaft was installed.

Mostly im asking why? why is the half shaft falling out nowSad

The result was a twisted steering knuckle which allowed the car to over steer to the left.
