The E8 actually comes apart pretty easily. The slightly oval 'rivet' looking things are actually just screws. They can be easily removed with a vise-grip or pliers. You will also have to remove some torx screws, so you will need to have a torx wrench on hand (actually 2 different sizes).
The E8 error is simply coffee grounds clogging up the mechanism. Once you have the covers off, it is still a bit difficult to get at everything but it should be enough. Simply leaving it open and allowing it to dry out thouroughly seems to work in itself. I have actually just run a hairdryer in there to dry out the hard to reach grounds.
However, I recommend plugging the unit in and watching it run through some rinse cycles. Use a flashlight to see, and then follow through with a dry cloth and get as much gound coffee out as possible.
The other symptom which can easily be fixed when you have the machine apart is when water/coffee is pouring out above the intended release, i.e., not out of the spout. This happens just from being dirty and clogged and is super simple to fix and very satisfying! The front grey, plastic, sliding cover pops off and exposes all the residual coffee gunk that is giving you trouble. Just take it apart carefully and clean and your machine will be as good as new.
Once you take it apart once, you will see it is not that difficult and you'll be happy:) We open it up about every 6-8 months now just to clean it. Trust me, when you see what builds up in there, you will want to also.
Or you could send it away and spend $300-$500 for an upgrade. The worst part of that is being without your coffee machine for a few weeks.
OF very careful when it is plugged in. Electricity kills :)
I compare all of this in difficulty to......well, my wife can do it. So can my 10 yr old son. Probably if you can put together a piece of IKEA furniture and you know what a torx is, you can do this.

How to remove and replace water lid on E8

The hooks in the lid are tricky to remove without breaking. It is best to remove the top cover. To do so you need special key to open the machine. Order the special key from the link below.
Watch the video posted on You tube channel "Parts Guru USA".

Descale the machine every three months using manual descaling.

Jura Capresso E8 keeps getting error code 8 over and over. I will clean, remove grounds etc, it will make a few espressos, then back to the error code. I can hear it struggling.

One of the problems that I see with these units is the Grinder setting. Sometimes the grinder is set too fine for Dark and Oily beans. This setting will ( can) clog up the brew screen after less than 10 cups are brewed. Also, running the cleaning tablets through to create a clean starting point may help you. Try turning the grinder to a slightly coarser setting and try that.

Error 8 -- Has anyone ever taken apart the grinder in an Jura Capresso E8 to clean it? I have had my E8 apart a few times to clean it, but I am hesitant to take apart the grinder for fear it may have...

I am also experiencing error 8. This a great coffee maker but after several years of use following the normal cleaning instructions just isn't enough. I can hear the machine straining after making a cup. I want to clean all parts inside, I got the front off and can lift the top a little. However there are what looks like 4 rivets on the back 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom. I cannot see how to get the top off and am afraid of breaking it.
Do you have any instructions on how to do this? Or can you tell me how to get the top off?

Cleaning instructions for jura E8

I am not sure if you are referring to the standard clean that the E8 requests. If that is the case the instruction are to press the rinse button for 5 seconds, until it asks you to remove the tray, then follow the instruction on the screen (they are normally, rinse, rinse, add tablet (should be Jura one) - add to powder shoot, then the process runs through.
If you are talking about de-scale then you should us the Jura de-scale tablets, but vinegar and biccarb can also do the trick.
