How Do I Replace the Stylus on My AT95E Phono Cartridge?
Replacing an ATN95E Stylus
(PLEASE NOTE: to avoid damage, do not touch the needle. Although not shown in the pictures, this process can also be performed with the stylus guard in place. No tools are required to replace the stylus.)
1. Remove the headshell from the turntable. To do so, rotate the headshell locking ring one full turn clockwise, which will release the headshell. Pull the headshell straight off.
2. Flip the headshell over and locate the flanges that protrude from either side of the ATN95E’s green body.

3. Applying light pressure, enough to grab the flanges, pull the stylus off the cartridge as shown in photos below. It may be necessary to gently rock the stylus side to side as you pull. PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH THE NEEDLE.
4. To attach the new stylus, simply follow the above instructions in reverse.
Replacing a worn stylus is an important and economical way to keep your turntable operating at its best.
