The drum unit is the gray bottom half of the component in the picture, while the top black part is the toner cartridge.
Separate the toner cartridge from the drum unit by pressing down on the blue tab and gently lifting the toner cartridge up by the lift on the handle.
DO NOT TOUCH the roller bar on the toner cartridge, or the roller bar on the drum unit as illustrated in the pictures. This may cause a decrease in print quality.
Insert the toner cartridge into the new drum break by firmly sliding the cartridge into the drum unit. If installed correctly, the blue lever will be locked in a lifted position.
Be sure that the black nob located on the back of the toner cartridge is places inside the track located on the drum unit.
The third picture illustrates an incorrectly installed drum unit and toner cartridge, notice how the blue lever is down.
