    You don't need to remove those clips to remove the cables.

    They compress as you pull on the cable to remove them.

    Sometimes one needs to reach in with a small screw driver to help them compress as you pull to remove the cable.

    Once in a while a small shot of wd40 or a drop of light oil to give a little lube and help with the compression of the ring.

    +1 above. I think my service manual says to use a "sharp tug" to get the cables out. If for some reason you lose or destroy one of the clips, safety wire can be used to make a new one.

    You can also get the retaining ring from HD. Idle cable retaining ring is P/N 11271, and the throttle cable retaining ring is P/N 11272.
