Didn’t know where to put this topic but since it’s on a 2nd gen I’ll put it here. I’m wanting to paint the compressor housing on my he351cw this weekend but it’s a pain to remove the snap ring that holds it on. It doesn’t have one of those convenient tabs that make it easy to remove its just got 1 hole in each side like a normal snap ring. Does anyone have a cheap tool that I can pick up at the hardware store? I can’t find any snap ring pliers big enough. I got it out last time with 2 punches and some channel locks but I’d rather not go through that again 😂

Make sure to check for boost leak behind that snap ring when you're done mine was losing a lot of air from there, took some rtv to cure it.

Harbor freight may fave something. Or you can make your own, welding something on channel locks or drill holes in them to put something in.

Got a large pair of channel locks and weld small pins to them. That snap ring SUCKS to say the least.

Pair of long needle nose pliers might work better. I've been known to get some out with my angled tipped needle nose pliers too.
