Removing shifter, c-ring removal tool? Please help :)

I tried, and could not use any of the available needle nose pliers I could find to remove the damn C-ring.
I went and bought the closest thing I could find to a C-Ring tool, a snap-ring tool. Way too flimsy for the C-Ring, just lost the grip every time I'd try to pull it up + out.
I tried using multiple screwdrivers, and I can't do it.

I just need to replace that inner shifter boot, it's busted open, and my car smells like tranny fluid, lol.

Where can I find a tool that is designed to remove this C-Ring? Is it a special dealership tool, or a generic tool? Would NAPA or Sears have it, cause autozone doesn't. Has anyone found one online? Thanks for any advice...

There are two types of ring removes. inner and outter... you just have to find the one that closes teh c-ring up. I know I had to do it myself.. try sears or even bug teh snap-on man if all else fails.

my regular needle nose pliers didn't fit, but i have a smaller pair, too... small needle nose pliers should be able to do it, and if you're going to buy a tool anyway, might as well buy something you'd use more often than a c-ring remover.

I'll try to buy some smaller needle noses, and if I can't get it with that, I'll try to find a C-ring tool.

I don't know why I had such a problem with mine, if you guys got it out with screwdrivers in a few minutes...

Thanks for the advice everyone, hopefully my car will smell fresh and clean soon

flathead is the best to use, especially when removing it.

Some needle nose pliers, and 2 screwdrivers. Still took me almost 15 minutes to take it out, and another 15 minutes to put the c-ring back in.

If I was doing this task alot, I'd buy the tool Nissan expects it's tech to use, but for a 1 time removal, just try everything else you can think of.
