- Let the hotend cool before continuing
- Disconnect the white heater cartridge wire from the 'H' port on the toolhead
- Disconnect the black thermistor wire from the "TH' port on the toolhead
- Loosen the M2.5 set screw on the side of the toolhead
- The hotend is now disconnected from the toolhead. Double check that the hotend is cool enough to handle with your bear hands! Gently pull down on hotend assembly, twisting a little if necessary and the entire unit will slide out.
- Slide the new hotend in place
- Tighten the M2.5 set screw
- Reconnect the cables for the thermistor and heater cartridge
