Installing the M552 M544 M555 M577 M553 M578 E55040 fuser.

Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord. The fuser might be hot if you have been using the printer. As a safety precaution wait 20 minutes for the fuser to cool before proceeding.

Open the right side cover.

The fuser assembly has two blue handles with squeezable release triggers; insert your fingers into the handles and squeeze and hold the triggers to release the fuser.

While squeezing the triggers, gently pull the fuser out towards you and remove it from the machine.

Install the new fuser in the reverse manner; make sure it is seated well, and then close the door.  In the next step you will reset the fuser page count.
