To access fuel Sender 300D
 
OK I got the 42 mm bolt out to remove the Fuel sender unit..(thanks to local mechanic who lends me big ratchets..)
Now I need to remove the cylander tube to access the sender. DIY page mentions circlip pliers....Anyone ever use these, or know where to get one, and what size?
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.....

Thanks,
AA

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.

Here is a photo ........http://www.maplin.co.uk/images/Full/4228i0.jpg a nice set but its just an example...

the pins fit the little holes and can squeese or spread depening on internal or external applications.

Cool I'llcheck Sears. I do have a mini set of screwdrivers/needlenose pliers in one of those kits I may try first.....
With the traffic light situation here still It takes 3X as long to get anywhere....There are State Troopers at like every intersection directing traffic.......
