I finally gave up on my convertible pliers and got a few sets of the long nose fixed tip type.
Not that it helps you any at the moment.

i gave up and drove 25 minutes to a friend's shop and he pulled out the full set of snap ring pliers.....none worked so he bent two picks in the fight to get the snap ring out, so it's out and now the fun begins......

When they are difficult I usually take a small punch and and hammer and break it loose by sticking the punch in one of the little holes and hammering inward (or outward if its an external ring) this usually works wonders.
