One of our cassettes got damaged this week - reasons as yet un-ascertained. It somehow got jammed and wouldn't come out. Eventually freed it and gingerly inserted our spare cassette, which slides in and out easily.

I was surprised to find on amazon.es a complete (non-Thetford) repair kit for the slidy-flappy mechanism that opens the cassette for use. It says "no tools required" but, try as I might, I can't get the old one off. I'm assuming it just twists anticlockwise.

Anyone here confirm that it's that 'simple'?

Yes it should just turn.
Take out the top slide, reverse it and slot it back in.
This works as the handle to turn with.
At least that’s how mine worked :giggle:

Search on YouTube- there is a Wildax owner who explains it really well. It can be very stiff but it does come off, although I would be hesitant to use the reversed flap as it is not that strong. I have seen refe to two pieces of wood either side of the raised section to give leverage.

If you look carefully you will see an arrow mark on the flap housing and a dot along with an o on the tank, when arrow is aligned with the dot it is closed and when o is, it is open and then the shutter mechanism will lift out, they can be very tight to turn and possibly break the flap if trying to use that , I've made a simple wooden tool to do it looks like a butter paddles.

Old thread I know, but removing mine resulted in breaking it, the slots that hold the blade broke :-(
