I had to remove 1 extra screw because i had different hot water output for tea. This was protected by a little cap; remove the round cap and then unscrew the bolt and pull out the hot water pipe for tea.

Thanks so much, excellent instructions. There was so much crap in the spout and now I'm making beautiful coffee again.
