Question:
How do you remove the circlip ( 2A 7352 ) from the Rear Radius Arm Stub Axel?
Answer:

Hello. I can help with that.  First, is the stub axle already out of the arm?

 

FOLLOW UP QUESTION:  No, it is not. The stub axle is still in the rear trailing arm. I need to remove the existing stub axle and install a new one.

FOLLOW UP ANSWER:

The stub axle must be pressed out of the arm before the clip can be removed. The snap ring is just a shoulder stop does not retain the axle.

 

FOLLOW UP QUESTION 2: 

Do you need to heat the trailing arm in the area of the stub axle to make the removal easier?

FOLLOW UP ANSWER 2:

Same as with any pressed in part, it may need to be heated if it's particularly stubborn or rusted. a hydraulic press or BFH will do the trick - usually.
