I was about to rebuild my diffs today, and I realized that I don't have the snap ring pliers. Do you guys know of a way to do take them out without the pliers besides using lexan scissors?

Shove something in there and muscle it out............ . I know it sounds hack but it works. I used to use just body scissors grond down a bit, and it worked great.

You can get a little creative and use 2 really thin and cheap allen wrenches and put them in the pin holes. Use death grip chopstick action to pull them out

That was the (okay, we'll call it technique) I used before the snap ring pliers. After a few Ali/Fraser battles with my diff. I broke down and bought the snap ring pliers. Only takes me five seconds now.

Sears Craftsman sells C-Ring pliers. They have several sizes. The smallest one that is black with red handles works perfectly...it cost like $5.00. No grinding or filing necessary...they fit perfectly.

I can't believe you guys buy $450 cars, $1000 of electronics and everything else, and are too cheap to buy a real set of $7 snap ring pliers. The set I bought from Sears (Craftsman, black pliers with red handles), included about a half-dozen different tips. I spent 30 seconds with a bench grinder lightly tapering the tips of the smallest inserts, and they work perfectly, without damaging the diff half or the snap ring.

My grandfather told me a long time ago, "no matter what you do, don't ever skimp on your tools."

Good advice.

True, but unfortunately Sears wasn't opened at midnight last night. And I F'ed up my girlfriends tweezers she uses to make necklaces.
