    Hey guys,

    So after much searching and fidgeting, I finally got my MM2 to work and move and angle all directions. I just bought the plow and its moving pretty slow, my guess would be that even though I have blue fluid, and it looks pretty clean, from what I have been reading the filter/screen is all gunked up. Is there a write up or diy for the insta act pump filter change.
    Any help and with pictures would be extremely helpful,

    If you look up at your resovoir (the bottom tank you put fluid in) there are 4 screws at the corners. They are a flat head screw or you can use a small socket to get them loose. Two are easy to get to, and two are kinda difficult on the back side. I always drain the fluid before removing it. Anyways, remove the 4 screws and pop it off. It may take a few light taps to get it loose from the o ring but it will come off.

    The filter will be right there. You can clean it or remove it.

    You may have to remove the two bolts that hold the pump to the frame to get the resevoir off.

    You should also clean the magnet on the bottom of the reservoir tank when you change the filter.

    It may need to be cleaned again by now. The little bolts are 8MM.
