Stepper gear removing ?

Post by snakesrules » Wed Jan 20, 2016 8:10 pm

Hi all , after a lot of print , i would like to make a deep clean of the stepper system , especially the motor as it seems to have a lot of melted plastic behind the gear .
Could someone tell me how to remove this gear ?
Thanks in advance.

The gear is not made to be removable.
Even you manage to remove it , I doubt it could be put back.

The plastic shouldn't cause any issues, I wouldn't worry about it.
