Hi mechanics! Anyone have a tip on how to remove the hydraulic filter screen on a JD 2440? I can wiggle it, but it doesn't want to turn loose. I'm trying not to damage it.

Thanks!
John

Its not threaded in, it just pushes in, pull harder.

Yank it out, - pull hard, - whatever it takes. New ones aren't that expensive if you ruin it.

Success! Thanks J.D.Dave and Jim ME. I used a hooked machinist's pick and got hold of the screen just behind the first ferrule. I did have to pull hard, as you suggested; so hard that I think the left rear axle is now about an inch shorter, but the screen finally came out little-by-little. It was gunked up pretty thick, which is obviously why it was stuck. I didn't damage it, so I'll give it a good cleaning.

I appreciate your taking time to advise me.

John
