Filament stuck inside bowden tube

Recommended Posts

Help! I have some material of Ultimaker's Yellow PLA stuck inside the bowden tube, that it cannot come out! The material must have melted, and then it cooled inside the tube and now it's impossible to take it out. I've tried inserting filament from one side and pushing it as hard as possible, putting it under hot water hoping that it would soften a bit, but it is quite stuck. Can anyone advise me on how to take it out? Thanks in advance.
