    Undo the screws and the plates should slide down. Now the fun to try and pull out the end caps. I tried to do one for a customer and it would not budge. Completely solid. A cheep Chineese copy so hopefully you should get more joy. I pulled a shoulder muscle trying to get it off.

    I had a feeling you might say that!! So i took the metal plates out and orange tap so now you just pull it from the single hose end is that right?

    Yes that is correct but with this style housing the membrane shaft is in both ends. Other housings the inlet end there is a gap between the membrane and end cap making it easy to take off. This was a nightmare. If you pull on that hose you will snap the fitting. I got a bolt and screwed it in then pulled and pulled.
