I don't know about the circlip thing, because that is axle related, never had mine out...as far as the torsion keys, torsion bar, spanner nut and such goes....
take the 27 mm nut off the end of the torsion bar, also called the sway bar.
To remove the torsion keys (the part with the arrow pointing up), take a block of wood, or a rubber mallet and tap the sway bar from one side to the other, that will free it up, then you can remove the torsion key.
Then there is a snap ring on the end of the shaft where the spanner nut is, remove that
Remove the spanner nut and pull the trailing arm off, after you disconnect the axle of course.
If you look at the parts breakdown available on this site, you will see the parts required to take the trailing arm off, or consult and service manual if you have one, there was a link to a free one on here somewhere, I downloaded it and saved it to my computer, for future reference.
