the lowes special i see. pry the pink part off (t should have release tabs on the sides...it's like tupperware), then take the cartridge out. if i remember correctly (i've got the same respirator on a shelf at my house right now) you can just take the filter out. IF i'm wrong about that, you have to cut out the filter, and leave the bottom/sides of the cartridge in tact so that you can put the pink guy back on it once it's empty. last time i had to do taht (different model) i just used a can opener on a swiss army knife

Do you want the casing to remain undamaged?
