Remove all juicing clear containers first. Then there are two grey handles on the sides, lift up and out (don't remove) it's there so you will be able to take other parts apart and out. Once you have done that, swivel black part back and for th until loosens and then you lift out. The blade will automatically come out with it. To put back together, repeat these instructions in reverse. Hopes this helps..
I pulled it up by the spout... Its still a bit hard though...
This from directions I received w/the jucier, unlock the locking latches, pull open at the bottom of each lacth to disengage from the grove of the cover.
2. remove cover, take out the feeder, grasp the chute and pull up the cover.
3. remove pulp separator, grip the juice spout with one hand and the back edge of the separator with the other, pull up with th cutter/strainer in place.
4. remove cutter/strainer, hold the juice spout with one hand and grasp the cutter/strainer rim pull it out.
Just flip up the 2 side pieces, take the top off, and each piece comes apart - pretty self-explanatory. Be careful of the sharp cutting blades.
