Location of av7 variator clips?

I’m pulling off my av7 variator and it is being a bitch. I pulled the cover with the mbk puller, then the c clip in the middle. The variator still won’t come off. What further do I have to do?

Remove washer/shim then another circlip but its opposite (spread instead of squeeze).

snap-on true arc/ snap ring pliers are longer & thinner...

and don't forget the 90* degree bent style...

they make a very useful glove for mechanics now...called mechanics gloves...they are prolly @ wallysmart.

oil & grease don't generally lead to infection though.

aluminum slivers are a real treat jammed in your finger nails...SO0o much of a treat!
