Coil head rebuildability?
I found some videos on youtube which explain how to rebuild the coil heads of the T3S, but I fail at the first step as I can't seperate the tube from the head, therefore I can't reach the wick & wire.

In the videos they say (and show) how you can easily wiggle the tube from the rest but mine so stuck that it won't move a single mm.

Did anyone successfully recoil these?

I understand you can't separate the chimney from the coil.
If that is so, you might want to screw the coil into the base.
Remove the silicone cap.
Then try again, you might want to apply some force as one is easier to remove then the other.
If you can't get it of this way you can use pliers but look out for squeezing the chimney.

Use force but be gentle.

Hmmm I wanted to avoid pliers but I will try it...

I just wanted to be sure that it can be done at all with FT's T3Ss.

Thank you!
