Smile Bendix Air Dryer Maintenance

I'm trying to change my dessicant cartridge on my Bendix air dryer model AD-IP. It doesn't have a clamp with a bolt to remove the housing. It looks like you must turn the housing a 1/4 turn or something to get the housing open. Does anybody have any experience in changing these filters?

My air filter (don't remember model) screws on like an oil filter. Buy the kit and filter wrench before removal. Be sure all air pressure has been removed as well. Stay safe and keep us posted.

Thanks. In the parts breakdown it lists the center bolt as the attaching device. I purchased a large strap wrench before reading the directions. Typical male not reading directions. Changeout was easy after reading about the center bolt.
