I saw that video but i did
I've never done it, but 2 mins of searching:

1:24 or so.
I saw that video but he does not show how to take it out. He skips it. Seeing if anyone has actually done it and what the best way to take it out is cause I do not want to be laying underneath my car scrolling through my iPhone contemplating life.

Yes, get a screwdriver in there or something and just pull down. It's not held in by a ton of force. You're probably overthinking it, but it comes out quite easily. I was able to get mine out just by reaching my hand up there and pulling it down with my fingers.

Under the lock ring there is a pin situated vertically. The purpose of the ring is to hold it in. It might not just fall out, so you may need to push down on top of it. You won't be able to see the pin until it's out.
