How does one remove Tiger River Jet Face?


Recommended Posts

How does one remove the  Jet Face  (#2 in diagram)???? 

Directions say


  1. Remove the jet by grasping the jet faceplate and pulling it away from the spa shell.
  2. With jet in hand, two o-rings should be on the rear portion of the faceplate. If either o-ring is not present, inspect the inside of the front wallfitting and remove the missing o-ring.
  3. To reinstall the jet, reverse steps 1 to 3.
    Important: Make sure that the o-rings are properly seated.

It rotates cw and ccw and comes to a dead stop, but it won't pull out.

I tried prying it off with a plastic panel remover with no luck.

I have a leak there and need to remove the body to make a clean repair.

I also want to change-out all the o-rings in this 20 yr old tub.

To answer my own question…

There are two tabs inside this jet face that if pried up slightly, you can then turn the face counter-clockwise a quarter turn to remove it from the spa.

You can see one of the tabs in the pic.

Getting to both tabs at the same time without breaking them is another puzzle.
