All I used to do was make sure the backplate surfaces are clean so that the grove in the cylinder is fully visible and push it upwards ether with a large screwdriver/ pry bar / or tap it up with a punch which ever works on the day may have even done them with a pair of water pump Plyers.

I’ve never seen one but it’s not to say they’re not a tool that will do it somewhere I think it was the only van at the time we had on the fleet with this type of clip we mainly had Fords so the transit is the only one I can remember with it.
