Identify your empty image drum by its coloured label (K,C,M,Y). To remove it, simply pull the drum straight up and out of the printer. You will notice the toner cartridge also comes with it, sat on top. So place the unit on a flat surface and remove the toner cartridge off the drum. But don’t throw it away, you want to install it on top your new drum.
