Is that a by-pass type? If so the bottom will have a screw you remove and the core will drop down and out. But if the drain is in the was you may have to remove the top but be very careful of the water line, and depending how long its been there the water shutoff won't work (at least they never would for me) any was get the top to move aside and pull the core up and out. ( do what ya got to do to move the drain)

The internal humid. pad can be accessed thru the top or bottom.

The bottom is preferred. Remove two 1/4" screws on each or two slides (depends on age of humid) side of drain trough and be careful not to spill water on your self as the is always some water left in the trough.

Let the drain trough hang by the drain tube or remove from drain line and set to one side.

You will know see the pad. Pull it straight out. Before replacing new pad clean the drain trough throughly. Germs can abound in the trough.

Slide in new pad a replace drain trough on to humid.

Change pad seasonally

Maintenance free in that you don't have to clean a scummy water pan.

You can only gt the pad from an HVAC dealer or parts seller.

Change every heating season.
