Posted · Removing bowden tube from extruder

HelLo 3D printer Community,


I am facing issue with extrusion of ASA. the extrusion amount is getting too low and it is not extruding almost anything. when i unloaded the material, i saw black tip on the filaments end. so i want to clean the nozzle by heating nozzle and pushing the filament through it. but i dont know how to remove the bowden tube so i can access the filament in hand and then carry on to cleaning the nozzle.  can you tell me how to remove bowden tube withoput breaking any component? 


Thank you,

Siddharth Tilala
