    Have a mm2, changed fluid today and intended to remove reservoir and change out suction filter, but couldn't get res off . Thought it was 4 screws holding on, but after I removed them wouldn't budge. Ended up putting screws back in and filling w/ fluid. Just wondering for next fluid change.

    use alil flathead screw driver and pry it of CAREFULLY, but be careful of the o-ring underneath. it'll be tricky to put it back on, you kinda gotta stretch it out to get it back on.

    I always tap them with a rubber hammer . And don't worry about an o ring you never want to use it over again and it comes with a new one in your filter kit.

    i bought a new filter from my dealer and it didn't come with a new o-ring, I just reused the old one.

    Ha, I actually got out the "universal tool", my hammer and started to "tap" it. than i said to myself, why break something that ain't broke. That's when I put screws back in and filled with fluid. Hey, there's always next year.

    You cheaped out and did not get the kit. The kit comes with the filter, filter housing o ring, o ring for the pick up tube, and o ring for the pump, hold down for the pump, and if its an early pump it may not have the hold down for the pick up tube that likes to fall out without having the hold down. I believe the kit is a whopping 14 bucks. I always inspect the pump when I remove the canister and change the pump o ring.

    I would take it off and inspect the filter. It's still.early and you have time before the cold.
