Description

This is my second rotary knob for my Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer.
This time with the Ultimaker robot in very good print quality.

Removing the existing rotary knob from Ultimaker:

Behind the existing rotary knob of Ultimaker there is a transparent protective housing, which is illuminated by the LED's. At the rear of the protective housing there is a small opening. With a screwdriver you can push the knob of the potentiometer through the opening.
But be careful, do not use a lot of pressure!

I have uploaded new pictures, which clarify the process.

Sorry for my bad English.
