You took it out and "put it back together"?
You really need some lessons on communication man.

alright, sorry to bag on you.
which part popped out? is the axle nut and outer joint still in the hub?

the axle part that pipe thingy. when i was putting the coils on the brake bent pretty far and it popped out . Man im just frustrated guys sorry. I will try couple more times to see whats up. the CV joint was still connected but i removed it to re attach the axle back in the CV or HUB whatever its called so the wheel can spin. So i did and the wheel spins but when i set it all on the ground and try to drive it, the MPH goes up but the car doesn't move and i hear the axle spinning but nohting moving

I've said this before but I'm sorry to say it again. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND SHOULDN'T BE WORKING ON YOUR CAR. Either sell it or get a mechanic.

Re: axle poped out of the hub (2001GTi18t)

do this. get the opposite side of the car in the air, and put it in gear. pop the axle shaft back into the joint. have someone spin the opposite wheel while you hold onto the broken joint. if you can hold it, your **** is busted. if it torques your arm, you are good to go. pop it back in the hub and hammer it down with a breaker bar.
as a side note, there's a circlip you have to defeat to get the outer joint to reseat. it's going to toake some whacking with a hammer. make sure the axle nut is in place so you can rethread it once reinstalled in the hub.
