Hi,
can somebody explain how to open an Apeks XL4 second stage front cap - just twist left or is there somewhere a hidden bolt ? I want to thoroughly clean the diaphragm.
Is there also an easy way to clean the exhaust "valve" membrane without taking it completely apart ?

The Apeks regulator "Manual" doesn't even mention the XL4 and when I bought it I was indeed shown how to open the second stage but as I am getting older I now just forgot how ;-)

Thanks for any help.
