Removing Cclip On Passenger Side Rear Axle Shaft For 94 Ford E150

Someone already answer portion of my questions at this link:

I have been trying to remove the C-clip that is around the end of the axle shaft with two screw drivers. It kept sliding around the ring. This C-clip do not have any holes for me to use any kind of “ring” removing tool like those you use to remove or insert piston ring and so on.

Someone told me to use a slide hammer and put it at the “wheel side” of the shaft, and then “slide” hammer it out (away from the shaft/wheel end).

I am afraid this might destroy the C-clip and render it unusable.

There is some concave surface at the end of the axle shaft where the C-clip is located.
If the shaft is hammered outwards, this curve surface would let the c-clip slowly slide over the axle shaft’s groove where the clip sits .

When you reply, please be specific and clear. I cannot understand shorthand or “obscure mechanical jargon Thanks
