Posted · How do I release the bowden tube?

Hi,

This might seem like a dumb question but how do I release the bowden tube from the extruder mechanism? I've tried pulling it up using pliers - it seems well stuck and I don't want to break anything...

Also I have a similar problem at the other end, I can't pull the bowden up out of the printhead - I have to disassemble the printhead, and pull the bowden down and out of the mechanism - all of which takes time to then reassemble - if there was a quick way to release it and lift it up and out of the printhead that would be great.

( It's a pre-assembled printer so I've not gone through the process of assembling it and I can't find any posts asking the same question.)

Many thanks,
