Manufacturer Code CX900DA
Cone Kit, Star Clear Plus - CX900DA
Do you have directions on how to install the cone guide. I assume the earing goes on the rod and then the cone guide slides over it. Detailed instructions would be helpful...thanks
Hello- Unfortunately, we do not have any installation instructions for this part. From personal experience, I can tell you that the e-ring goes on the inside of the lid to hold the knob in place the cone simply slides over the rod.
How does the e-ring and washers go on?
The easiest way I have found to remove the e-ring is to get a large flat-head screwdriver. You place it in the curved side and turn. This should pop the e-ring loose. From there the handle will slid out the top. You can then replace the o-rings and washers. To put the e-ring back on takes a little more patience. Carefully place the e-ring in the slot, then with the flat-head screwdriver try to leverage it back into place.
how do I replace these without braking the rest of it
The cone is secured to the center rod with an e-ring. These are difficult to remove without buying a special set of pliers that attach to holes in the e-ring and spread the ring open to remove it.
Less than 1 hr
1. Remove cone and e-ring. (pop off e-ring with a screwdriver)
2. Remove locking knob and o-ring and washer. (knob pulls out from the top)
3. Slide new washer on locking knob, then install new o-ring, re-install knob.
4. From inside filter housing place second new washer on knob, then take e-ring and line it up by hand in the groove, then with a large flat blade screwdriver push the e-ring into the groove from the center of the e-ring, replace new cone and your done.
