Hi, ** Please ignore as I have found the answer.

I need some retaining clips in 8mm.

Unfortunately I don't know the name of the clips.

They are round with2 or 3 teeth facing inwards, something like an E clip but a full circle.

I have seen them on cars for retaining spindles or to stop something coming off a spindle.

They can be pushed on but resist moving in the other direction.

Has anyone got an idea what they are called please?

It sounds like you mean a "self locking retaining ring",
hope that helps :)
