    Vision Lid Stuck

    Can't get the b*stard head of my scrubber canister!

    Pulling it / prizing it / blowing into one end whilst covering the other.... No luck.

    Only recently come back from a service so I'm trying very hard to resist throwing the fecking through my window at the moment.

    Tips, anyone?

    Call APD and ask them. They'll most likely have some good tips. Next time, grease the o-ring better! ;-)

    If you donít have an AP cell checker. Connect the exhale hose from the snorkel to the head outlet (inhale). Connect O2 and turn on. Switch on handset and select high setpoint.
    Make sure head bolts are unlocked.

    Attached the cell checker and it popped off (with an uncomfortable amount of force) just as it was reaching 0.7

    Plenty of silicone grease used on the lid oring so I don't think that's the issue.

    Hmm. Very strange. Mine has only got that tight when I've been a bit stingy on the grease (double entendres galore!). Perhaps a check on the state of the o-ring (is it definitely the right size? Maybe it got displaced slightly) and the circular-ness of the lid and canister might be a good idea?

    Some are stiffer than others but I've never found one that can't be popped of by blowing into one end while blocking the other on a cheek.
    Sometimes you need a couple of bit puffs though.
    I never grease my o-ring and never have an issue.

    What you must not do is prise it off with a screwdriver or similar tool like a guy I know did!

    I puffed so hard I started seeing spots and had to lay down.

    I let the solenoid do the work after that.

    I'll grease a little more next time and see if it was just a one off.

    Was speaking to a fella that had similar issues, sent it back and seemingly this was a manufacturing issue as the o ring recess wasn't machined to the correct depth. Ap fixed it for him and charged £50 to rectify the problem.

    They charged him for a manufacturing error?
    Rememeber anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!
