Hello. To do this you will need put enough pressure on the cover to remove the snap ring. The easiest way is using a cover compressor. Then you will need a cover remover and the adapter with a slide hammer. If you would like I can provide all the part numbers for these tools and the procedure.
putting pressure on the cover will take the pressure off the snap ring and allow you to remove it which will then allow the piston cover to be removed
Did it work?
