Or any other way to remove this very small clip? (that does't even look like a clip or bolt...)

I am hoping I only have to clean the sender and not have to buy a new one.....

if you have two scribes you can improvise.or tiny screwdrivers...something..circlip plier do make the job far easier however...I eventually broke down and got a set....I use them rarely but when you need them, they make life easier.
