MG MGB Technical - Broke retaining clip master clutch cylinder

Hi all,
Back after a brief bout of "what am I doing trying to sell my B!!!?" Decided to keep it (I'm better now..)cause I spent a lot of time amd money on it plus it is a blast to drive.
Anyway, I was trying to replace the push rod on the clutch master cylinder when the retaining clip "ends" broke off. Without them how do I remove the retaining clip to replace the push rod??? Nothing to grip to sqeeze it to get it off.
Any suggestions will be a help. Thanks
Joe Fabian

I've done that on other parts, a sharp pointed tool may help you pry one broken end out enough to get small screwdriver between the retaining clip and it's grove. You should be able get a needle nose pliers on it and twist it out.
