The developer sits in a small, black casing that houses the toner bottle. When you pull out the toner, look for a small, blue or green screw that holds the developer box in.

Once you pull the developer out, you'll notice three screws on the outer casing (two on top as you look down on the unit, plus one looking down into the opening where the toner bottle sits). Removed these screws and set them aside. You should now be able to pull the cover off the unit and expose the developer assembly.

Dump out the old toner in a plastic bag. Be careful, as it can spill out quite easily and it's a pain to clean up out of carpets. You'll want to invert the developer unit and use the plastic gear on the backside of the unit to spin the magnetic rod until all of the developer has been removed (be careful not to scratch the surface of this rod, as it's what holds the developer in place during copy processes).

Place the new developer into the open auger area of the unit. Put the cover back on and install the three screws you removed earlier. Place the developer assembly back into the body of the copier and screw the blue or green retaining screw back into place. Now you can re-install the toner bottle and start the copier back up.

It's part of a kit. You'll need to consult their support site or a tech to get the part number and pricing. It's all disposable these days...

Sharp copier ar-5316

That unit uses an AR-016TD Toner/Developer Cartridge. The developer is changed each time you replace the toner. To remove the drum unit open the right side cover, then the front cover, remove the TD cartridge, loosen the green screw on the front of the developer unit housing just above the TD slot. carefully remove the DV unit without tipping or you will spill out the existing DV. Then you can pull out the drum unit. There may be a green screw on the drum that must be loosened but I don't think so on that particular model. Installation is the reverse of removal.
