Tools Needed (varies with riser model)
• T-Handle Tool – PN 053191

Hold Snap-ring Tool vertical over the rotor’s upper snap ring. Align the metal end of the snap-ring tool to the indicator on the snap-ring’s rubberized wiper seal (fig 1). Use the palm of the other hand to drive the tool downward & through the rubberized membrane. Tool should penetrate about 1/2 inch into the snap-ring assembly (fig 2). While holding the tool within the snap-ring, press the tool’s handle downward and away from the center of the rotor. As the tool is pressed downward, the snap-ring will lift from the rotor (fig 3). While using the tool to hold the snap-ring in this elevated position, use the other hand to pull the snap-ring from the rotor. If the snap-ring’s rubberized wiper seal appears to be the only part that is lifting, the tool has not penetrated into the snap-ring far enough.
