HELP getting my C clips off axle

I have a D35 on my TJ but im posting it in here to get advice from you YJ guys.
I have an Aussie locker in there that is posing the problem because i cant see how the c clips can come off with that locker in the way.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I am pushing in the axle to expose the c clip, but i cant see it.
thanks

Sometimes you have to use a small poker (for lack of a better term) and rotate the c-clip some so the open area of the c-clip is visible. Then use a tool to rotate it around again so the open end of the c-clip is at the rear of the opening in the diff.

Did you remove the cross-pin first? If not, you won't be able to get the c-clips out.

This is a pic of me removing an 8.8 c-clip fmom my ARB'd F8.8 when I use to have c-clip (don't have them anymore), but this should give you an idea.

If I remember this right... The side gears in a Aussie have a little channel in them for the C-clip to fit out through. It's in the area where the teeth mesh between the side gear and whatever the middle parts are called. If You don't have the carrier facing the right way it will look too narrow to get the clip out through.

EDIT: Check out htis pic

The channels are between the cam gears and the axle gears. Just on one side though. You cant see them in the pic, but it goes between the teeth.
