Unhappy Replaced outer cv joint now axle spins, possible inner stub popped out?

I replaced the outer cv joint on my 1997 Jetta tdi last night, everything went ok, this morning when trying to leave there was some crunching and poping then no forward movement at all. I went under the car and shook the axle and it feels very loose / wobbly at the inner cv.

I think I might have popped the inner cv out of the transmission when hammering the outer off the shaft. Is it possible to just use a hammer to smack the inner cv stub back into the transmission? Or does the entire axle need to come out now to make sure the inner race is in place and everything like that.

Thanks for any input.
