I have two later Series 1 Europiccolas with the removable shower screen. I'm unable to find the tool to remove the sleeve, though I see them for the earlier fixed versions. Can the same tool be used?

No the diameter of the group is different, coffee sensor sells a special tool for the old group. https://coffee-sensor.com/product/la-pa ... oval-tool/

Yes, that one is too old. Mine are from the 1970-1974 generation. I haven't seen a tool available for these.

I have that tool, it fits my gen 1.6 europiccola (serial nr B5689, the first version with removable showerscreen). There is no difference in the sleeve diameter in these first gen europiccola (until the sleeve disappeared in version 2.0 around 1975.)

Thank you, Rob. I had hoped so but the tool is only described as for pre 1970. I feel better now.
