Anyone know how to change a Pur Faucet Filter?

I just got home from working all day and I'm really tired. I bought a pack of filter replacements for my Pur Water Filter that is connected to the Faucet on my kitchen sink. I took the whole thing off the sink and opened the bottom up. It looks like that is the only place that opens. But there is a blue plasic thing inside and I figured it would twist off and the replacement filter would go inside somewhere, however I cannot get the blue thing to budge. Am I doing something wrong? Or am I just too tired to twist it?

Did you keep the directions for it? That's the best answer I can give you, read the directions. I keep all the directions/instructions for every product in my house so I can refer to them as needed.

No, silly. Lol. If I had the directions I wouldn't have asked. Although some people may ask anyway just to make some money. There's an idea... Lol. I could pretend I don't have directions for any of my appliances and ask questions on mylot about all of them. Lol. I'm tired and being silly. I just bought it not too long ago. You would think the box would still be around somewhere with the instructions inside of it. I think I threw it away. I usually save all my instructions too. I have a place in my filing cabinet for them. But the water filter seemed too small...to simple...like I wouldn't need to follow directions for it. I remember having the directions when I was putting it onto the faucet. Maybe I'll look around tomorrow and see if it's on a pile of mail and papers or something. I'm too tired tonight. Thanks for your comment!

I didn't see any instructions on that site. I surely thought others would have one of these things and respond by now. It's been sitting on my kitchen table for days and I don't know what to do. I'm back to buying bottled water again, and not drinking enough of it. The worst thing is, that when I took it off the sink, the twisty end of the sink is also stuck inside the pur filter too! So I have 2 things wrong! I may just have to buy another whole new thing...and save the instructions next time!
