first have a look here;


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
