English term or phrase: top cove - spout - tab and rib
Context is again the kettle.
"To remove the filter from the spout, pull the top slider (8), open the top cove, and take the filter out from its locked tab and rib."

oberen Deckel, Tülle, Fassung
Explanation:
I beleive cove is a typo=should be 'cover'
tab & rib = approx 'Reiter und Rippe' but is unnecessary to translate literally. So:
Um den Filter von der Tülle zu entfernen, ziehen Sie den oberen Schieber (8), entfernen Sie den oberen Deckel und entnehmen Sie den Filter aus seiner Fassung

Explanation:
cove (geogr) = kleine Bucht
cove (civ eng) = Wölbung f, Rundung f zw. Decke u. Wand coved (civ eng, ceiling) mit Rundungen angesetzt

spout = Schnauze eines Topfes, Tülle, Ausguß

My thinking is that the filter has a 'tab' (clip) that secures it to....whatever. The rib is probably some conical 'raised areas'that make the fit between the filter and the 'whatever' tighter.

I have no idea at the moment of how to say that in German, though.
Anyway I hope to have helped at least a little bit.
