Default 1996 D1 headset removal

Anyone know how to remove the headset? The exmoor trim video is a different type I guess.

Now that I'm off my stupid fucking phone - there are two rods in the center hidden by the foam. You cut about 30mm down on those through the foam and you can get in there and see a tiny almost hidden spring clip that goes around the rods. If you're lucky. If you aren't lucky you won't see it. Eventually you can manage to pry it off, then everything comes out. In 30 years of working on cars and trucks this is about the most stupid design for the most simplest thing I've ever encountered. You literally have to cut the foam to get to it. And you pretty much ensure that you mangle the clips.

Could they have simply put a spring detent on the outside frame (which also has two bars running down into it) or even a screw that you could remove to remove the headset? Absolutely, and cheaper, too, much cheaper than having custom metal clips made for only this application.

Look! Another thing I'm just going to safety wire back in place rather than fuck with the idiotic British pseudo-engineering.
