Clip removal advice

Quick question before I hurt myself or accidentally destroy something.

What is the best way to remove this clip thingy? For reference, its holding the rear brake lever in place.

Some form of snap ring pliers. Available at Autozones and Sears and if you're a high roller snap on.

Needle nose pliers can work in a pinch. If you F it up a hardware store generally carries an assortment of sizes.

best way to remove- external snap ring pliers

if you don't have that then a straight blade screwdriver with your hand over it to prevent having to chase it.

or an old pair of needle nose pliers ground down

success!

I'm removing it to replace my bent brake lever with a straight one. And on that note, when I took the old lever off, it appeared to have lube of some sort on it. Do I need to apply fresh lube before putting the new lever on? If so, what kind?

The thing with a cir-clip like that is position. Basically, they are stamped out. One side has a round edge, the other is sharp or flat. So to install a cir-clip like that, you want the thrust side digging in. In other words, you want the flat side being the one that is being pushed out and over that hump.

If you install the clip with the round side, then the thrust or whatever is being held by that clip, that thrust on the round side will pop it out. So you want to be critical with transmission cir-clips and know the free wheeling gear is going to have the dogs thrust into the free wheeler. Therefore, you install the flat side away from the dogs that are about to enter the free wheeler.

Make sense?
