The stopper rings, should be able to just pop loose with a thin sharp flat blade screw driver.

Posted same question about 4 months ago and not a single answer . I learnt the hard way.

Chainsaw and WD40 did it for me.

Chainsaw ??? For those that have not come across it yet, its very similar to the snap ring that goes in the end of the gudgeon pin/piston pin/wrist pin, but that has a slot to get an implement in to pop out the snap ring.. The a-arms do not..they have a tiny slot but anything that fits in it will be so small that it will break...
Using a screwdriver on it just makes it spin round and round...
One person suggested drilling a tiny hole to poke something through to push it out.. dont really want to go down that road.
Its called a stopper ring in the workshop manual.

Can you not hold it still and then pop it out, hold it with one driver and pop out with the second.

No as there is no way of getting anything (that im aware of) in, around, down the side or under it...
Space is also very limited..

There not too bad to do ,once you get the "knack" of them.

Remove seals and collars . There is a small amount of play in the spacing of the clips to the bearing. I just push the bearing with a socket and a vice one way upto the other clip. Then there is enough room to push the clip in with a screwdriver and prise it out. Push the bearing from the other side and bingo. Simples.
