    How do you?

    I need to remove my driveshaft. I cannot get the floating ring to push back to remove circlip. Is there any trick?

    If you ride in the salt you may have to have the tool. On my ski, I stood behind it and pulled back on the floating ring with both hands. It was somewhat stiff the first time, but after that it was no problem.

    I've got to ask a couple of dumb qustions first.

    1. What are you working on?
    2. Is the pump still in place? Seems obvious, but you never know....

    Having a tool is nice, but in a pinch I've used a 2' long piece of 1" x 2" wood to work it loose with good success. Sometimes you've gotta be creative with these things.

    Its a 2006 RXP I have already taken the pump off but i can put it back on if it will help.I am pulling to motor to fix a leak on the botom end.

    Here is the tool,

    It will be much easier to pull back the floating ring and access the clip with the pump installed.

    Thanks all I got it with two pry bars and a brick. No need for the pricy tool.

    you need to leave the pump on to get the clip off, otherwise the shaft just moves backwards.

    You can make one if you have some time, a drill, a torch, and a grinder. Parts from Lowes. I added an 18" rebar handle to the wrench that is not in the pics. That's a 1" open end wrench, 1-1/2" would take less grinding.
