Because I know you boys like pitchers I'll post a couple

That clip was all I pulled when changing out my counter shaft seal

If I remember correctly it just holds the seal in place and nothing else. I think I popped out the old seal with a small flat blade screw driver. I put a little grease on the new seal and pushed it in to place and reset the clip. I did it so quickly that I never really thought much about doing it.
Hope this helps

Good luck
