    first have a look here;

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2/blob/master/um2%20assembly%20manual%20V1.1%20_english.pdf

    you should not need any force, just remove the left motor cover on the inside (1 bolt at the back and 1 at the side panel), then hold the feeder motor, while unscreweing the 4 bolts in the feeder.

    >please update your profile with the printer type you have, I assume you have a Ultimaker2

    Hi MrsP, flexible filament is difficult to work with when using a printer with a Bowden tube like the UM. As a beginner you will save yourself a lot of grief if you buy some "normal" PLA from someone like Faberdashery.co.uk

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
