I am installing the printer maintenance kit but cannot pull out the elevator tray to access the filter cover assembly. The manual (p.3-2) gives directions to push down in one place and pull up in another to pull out the elevator tray unit and the horizontal conveyance unit. I have tried but do not want to force the plastic parts. Thanks ofr any ideas on how to do this. Mark

If I remember correctly, you'll need to partially pull out the finisher in order to replace the filter. It says for you not to remove the finisher because you don't need to pull it out all the way.

So, with your machine turned off, open the finisher's door and you'll see a round hole in the front of the finisher. Stick your philips screwdriver there and push so you will release the finisher from the machine's main body. While pressing, pull the finisher towards the front of the machine and you'll feel the finisher sliding. Don't slide it all the way, just enough so you can replace the filter and after replacing it push the finisher again towards the back of the machine until you feel it locked in place.
