I dont go deep. I will try to just gently move the plastic portion of it.

You know the two blue flip-handles you have to push downward to release the retaining clips? Keep pushing down on those handles even after they stop against the canister.

Fluval 404 very tight to open try some silicone lubricant just on the o-ring next time you take it apart. This seems to allow it to come apart just a little easier. NO spray penetrating lubricant like on a rusty bolt, just pure silicone. (Local Hardware Store). Think the fluval's bad try closing one of those ocean clear canister filters.

I guess that's just the thing abaout canister filters. I had an Eheim ecco before and it was horrible to close, too. I finally broke something and had to get a new part, but then I had it figured out 8) .

i used to sell fluval at a local lfs until we discovered eheim.

use eheim filters you pay a little extra but dont have any of the headaches associated with the inferior hagen fluval series!

Hehe, that's a good one . Like I said I had a Eheim ecco before and it was just as horrible. I finally broke a part and had to go and get it fixed!
