Air desiccant cartridge removal

Can anyone tell me how to get the air desiccant cartridge off my 2007 Inspire C9 engine? Does it just spin off or is there something that holds it in place?

There are a few common air system driers in use on motor home chassis.
This pdf covers servicing two of them.
The dryers with the spin off filters , some members have reported them being VERY tight and hard to remove.

Not sure post #2 would help with the CC chassis.
Our CC uses a Bendix AD9 air drier, located behind the front axle, up high.

I unbolted 3 various sized air lines and one electrical line, then removed two bolts and dropped the whole thing to the ground.

The spin-on desiccant can is hidden underneath a larger can that is bolted to the air drier housing. I was lucky to have a larger oil filter wrench and it spun off the desiccant can easily.

The whole process took < an hour. The chassis paperwork (from Gillig in my case) mentions the AD-9 drier.

Good luck!

Air Dryer cartridge

Thanks for the help guys. Looks like I have a Bendix Dryer but I can't get the canister off of it so I'll have to take the dryer out to work on it.
