What cover do you want off? Most of the plastic covers have no retainers, just ears that have to be pried back as cover is pulled up.??
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Sorry Curtis. Perhaps I didn't give enough info??
I have a Karcher 6.750 high pressure water sprayer. See 4 x photos attached.
My 6.750 looks different to yours but I am in Australia.
I got the yellow front cover off but that does nothing. It was actually glued on!
I started it yesterday....something when "bang" inside and water starting pouring out from everywhere. My web research shows a lot of black plastic (polyprop??) connections inside ALL the Karchers fail often so I'm trying get the BLACK cover off (either the front or back) to see the prob. But my unit doesn't appear on the web anywhere.
In my 1st photo there's a rubber seal to the left of the unit. That was on the ground next to the unit after it went bang. :-)
Hope you can help further?
Cheers
Danny

I find units that look like yours , but none show the breakdown. Looking at the pictures, the yellow and black covers show what appears to be screws around the outer covers, but they would be obvious. I don't have a good answer, so I will opt out. Maybe someone else has had one apart. Sorry I can't help. Good luck with it.

Hi Danny my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. To remove the cover you will have to remove the screws, most of them use a torx bit though , it looks like a star bit . In your second picture ded you remove the 4 to 6 screws from the back ?

Hi John,
See attached 2 x further documents showing where we're at. One each for the front & back.
So you can see:
From the back of unit I removed 3 x Philips ONLY
From the front of unit I removed 4 x Philips & 2 x torx.Where to next please?

Can you get a picture of the underside of the unit

Hi John,
Sorry mate. It all got a bit too hard with JustAnswer. With all due respect it seems JustAnswer didn't actually know the answer so I took the Karcher to a service centre.Where do we go from here if I didn't get an answer from you guys in a timely manner?Cheers

Basically no expert is paid until you rate their service . So you can contact just answers customer service and ask for a refund on the question posting fee .
