Lost 5th Gear but Clip is still there.

I ran into a problem shortly after I bought this 90 Jeep Wrangler back in Feb. It has the 4 cyl and the ax-5 transmission. In April I lost 5th gear while driving down the highway, I have just used 4th since then and started researching what could be wrong. I figured it was the c-clip on the shaft that holds the 5th gear in place. Finally I got some time and started tearing it down last night and found out the c-clip was still there and 5th gear was still in place. What could the problem be? No 5th gear an no broken clip.

I have the same problem with my 1995 YJ. No 5th gear and when I press the clutch in it makes a squealing sound. I put it in the shop today for them to look at. They are currently thinking it is the slave cylinder. But they haven't puled it apart yet.
