    It has eyes on it. Make sure you got ALL of the rubber boot out if there. That rubber boot has a metal band molded into the inside of it that makes it seal inside the bore. Make sure you got that part out of the bottom of the hole. Then the circlip holes should be apparent. Also, sometimes they are hard to see due to buildup of crud that collects in there. A little brake parts cleaner and scraping with a pic may help.
