|Airbrush in need of cleaning|
First of all, you need to unscrew the needle chuck between the holes in the back section, and remove the long needle that runs from the ball at the tail of the airbrush to the nozzle at the tip.

|Ready to loosen Air Valve|
Notice how really tiny the nut you first loosened is, and also, the spring from inside the assembly. Imagine trying to find them if you drop them on the floor! Also inside the air valve are a tiny O-ring and valve plunger (not pictured).

Finally, unscrew the cutaway handle at the back of the airbrush, then unscrew the tube shank assembly found inside.

|Cleaning out the paint cup|
|Make sure that paint (middle) channel is clean, too|
|Coming back together|
If the tube shank assembly will not screw in all the way, turn its center post while pulling gently, until the post lines up with its channel. Then you should be able to screw in the tube shank assembly the rest of the way.

Susan says I need arrows. I will rework this post when I figure out how I am going to get arrows on my images.
