    I managed to get a blob of UHU glue on the extruder nozzle.   Worse, some of the glue apparently wicked up inside the nozzle.  So I have to take off the nozzle to clean it.

    The plan to remove it is to heat up the nozzle, grab the rectangular block the nozzle screws into with some pliers, then us a wrench to remove the nozzle.  Does anyone have improvements to the plan?

    Also, in case the nozzle isn't fixable, does anyone know the nozzle ID or perhaps which of the several nozzles sold on Amazon would work?

    Thanks.

    Heat the hot end up and take a piece of rag or paper towel and clean off the nozzle, I don't believe that anything got up in the nozzle when you heat up the hot end you should see PLA coming out if the nozzle or do a print and see.
