Take the chimney/chamber part and screw it into the top ring from the top and run it under some hot water. If you jiggle it a bit, it will come out, it's just pressed into the groove of the bell cap.

Take a small coin (I use a 10 cent euro coin, diameter is 2cm). First unscrew the base, then put the coin vertically on the inside metallic part (bell) and while holding the plastic, turn the coin around like you would with a screw (see the picture). After washing it, apply some VG so it turns easier but I think you don't have to wash it every time you clean it. Only the first time it is necessary.

thanks for the detailed answer,but this part i manage to take off,it's the upper ring that stays stuck on top of the plastic tank.

i already tried that,but the ring seems well attached and i'd rather not force on it and brake the tank,since i'm not sure yet i'd like to use this RTA in the future and buy spare tanks for it.

it doesn't seem to be an issue the way it is.

It's how I popped mine out. :)

With the heat, the PC softens and the metal expands enough to wiggle it off, it shouldn't damage it. I had to take it off, just because, and to clean it. It can be left on, but if the tank breaks, it'll have to come off anyway.

i might try it again the next time I'll wash it,and with hot water this time.
