You mean the cartiage on top is removable

Then the very first step would be remove the filter and replace the cartiage assy
The cartiage normally get blocked by moisture and dirt
Let me know if you need procedure to replace it

The filter is very heavy like it is full of crap
Technician: AMANDEEP MAHERU,
 replied 3 years ago
Did you already replace it
Ask Your Own Heavy Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No I took it off to take a look at it I don’t have any air at the governor the air goes into the dryer but hardly any air coming out of the dryer
Technician: AMANDEEP MAHERU,
 replied 3 years ago
The air at governor will come once it goes into the tank then it will come to governor
But you are not getting anything into the tanks
I would suggest to replace that filter first that should solve your issue
