Folks,
Having read the thread about dirt and muck under a coil cover how do you go about removing one from a 1220,does it just pull off or do you need a knack to remove,thanks.

I always found having girly fingernails helped
its one of those cases where you have to keep going round and round the edge , teasing it off a fraction of a mm at a time
Pain but you will get there, dont force it else you will be spending money on a new one...
apparently soaking in warm water helps but i never tried that

Warm it ::g If waterproof stick it in a bowl of hand hot water or stick it under a radiator or some other form of heat to warm it so it softens a bit (but doesn’t melt it x; ). Think more not cold (so it cracks) than proper heat.

In the summer i stuck my coil outside for an hour in the sunshine and it came off easy ::g

Having tried a hairdryer to the point of the plastic getting slightly soft it will not budge so think i will leave well alone in case it splits,thanks for the advice though.

It is one of those cases where you have to keep going around the edge until it shifts a tiny bit, then keep moving around and around moving it a bit at a time, then all of a sudden it pops off
but think about it, if its that tight it is uinlikely to have much inside it that could affect your detecting
With alloverovers case he had a hole in the cover itself which let stuff in

But is there actually a coil cover fitted, or are you trying in vain? :D
