Just finished my clutch install on my 2017 GTI PP. Went smoothly but my passenger’s side axle cup which goes through the LSD moves in and out. I cannot remember if this occurred before or not. The driver’s side axle cup does not have any play. Is this normal? What could it be?

Video for clarity:

Yes torqued to 33nm. It was doing this same movement when the diff was out of the car but I assumed it would stop once I put the allen screw back in place.

Completely forgot to mention in original post. Diff leaked a very good amount of fluid while it was out of the car. Videos I was watching drained the fluid from the diff before removal so I assumed that was why. Looking back I realize that there is likely a big issue here.
