Removing the Feed end Bowden Tube?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Removing the Feed end Bowden Tube?

Just got my new tube in the mail and want to install it, but I cannot figure out how the tube comes out of the coupling at the feed mechanism end? Do I just pull the tube out hard or is there a trick to it?

Thanks,

Just press down the moveable part of the coupling, keep it pressed and then pull the tube out. If it doesn't come out with little force, try wiggling or a push-pull.

You're more likely to break the (already faulty) bowden tube than the coupling, so you can use quite some force - be careful of the wooden part breaking though!
