    agreed. you will need a snap ring tool.

    Have you tried a paper clip? I don't need another special tool to gather dust.

    Paper clip definitely won't work.
    Something stiff usually can spin and lift one end of the snap-ring out of it's groove, at which point the rest is easy. Shorten an ice pick?
    Maybe a mini vice grip and a shortened nail of the size of the eyes of the cir-clip? Sometimes you can grab the eyes with a skinny needle nosed plier and take it right out (the internal snap ring pliers are basically that, with hardened/round tips.
