    That clear tube is called the "bowden" tube.

    Remove the colored clips at each end of the bowden and push down on the ring around the bowden while lifting the bowden at each end so the bowden is no longer connected to the machine. Remove the bowden from the wiring also. If the filament is stuck in the head then heat the head to 180C and then pull it out and let the head cool down. If the filament is stuck in the feeder then cut the filament well past the end of the bowden.

    If you still can't get the filament out put it in a pan of boiling water. A lasagna pan is perfect. Put the bowden in the pan. Pour boiling water over the bowden. Wait 20 seconds. Use gloves to pick up bowden, pull filament out firmly.
