You can remove those clear tubes - easy to do.  They are called "bowden tubes".


First realize that the two ends are different so don't put the tube in backwards when done.  The end on the feeder has an internal taper - like a funnel.


To remove first remove the little white clip.  then push down firmly on the white ring (collet) - this is best done with a tool such as pliers or screwdriver.  While pushing down firmly on the collet lift the tube out.  To put it back together push the tube back in and while holding the tube down slide the clip back under the collet.  


By the 30th time you do this you can do it with your eyes closed.
