Default c-clip removal with locker

any tips or tricks that you guys know of to remove the c-clips out of a locker? ive got the 8.8 and i need to replace a seal, but iirc those c-clips are buried inside of the locker. i have a lock right. just contemplating on how i am going to get those little buggers out so i can pull the shaft

there should be plenty of room to get it out with a magnet through the cross shaft hole. That's how I have always done it on a D35. Don't know if the 8.8 is the same or not.

I'm not familiar with the lockright, but with my aussie, i have to remove the springs and pins first.

Haven't messed with an 8.8 but in my d35 with an Aussie just pulling the center pin and setting the teeth up on each other on the side you want to take out gets you plenty of room- push the axle in to line the c clip up with the slot and they should pop right out basically.. maybe a little persuading with a pick, or turning the carrier so the slots point straight down and more wiggling and the clip should fall down.
