What You Will Need

  • A removal tool
  • Clean hands – to ensure no dirt gets into the device.

The Process

Using your removal tool, look for the clear section on the top of the hearing aid, push under this button gently, and it should pop up.

This will allow you to take the receiver out, the wire that connects it to your ear, by simply pulling it.

Grab your new receiver and push it into place, using the same button to press it down, allowing it to be secured in place.

When to See a Professional
