Wondering what you guys used to open the spring retainer for fichtel and sachs forks?

Press down the spring retainer with a two legged bearing puller (attach the
legs at the upper triple tree).
Remove the clip in the grove inside the stanchion.

Or make your own special tool for this, the you also can press down the spring
retainer(s) when the stanchions/fork legs removed from the bike.

I had a Dad around to push a T bar down into the bolt while I plucked the silly circlip out. Do you not have any help available?

I have just done a pair today I pushed down with a 12mm bar and picked the clip out with a fine point, came out quite easily.

... or go to Pep Boys, O'Reilly, or NAPA auto parts store and borrow a puller. These stores loan tools to home auto mechanics. Great to borrow if this is the only reason you need a puller.
