stubborn snap rings

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how they install and remove the snap rings such as those used on the cone clutch and the BGB input shafts, these things can be a pain, they are not the kind with the little holes to use a snap ring pliers on. Thank You! Chris

Fighting with these old snap rings made me buy a pair of pliers with changeable tips. Came with a couple different flat/blade tips that work pretty good. IMO, worth the money spent at NAPA.

What MPH is talking about is money well spent. I've found them for around $3-$5, IIRC. Another handy item, at least for car sensors, is a set of torx allen wrenches. Both of these are sometimes hard to find, then you see them everywhere!
