Changing coils on the GArrett ATX
« on: January 12, 2019, 03:06:10 PM »
Hi ,

The video shows how to remove a coil and all is fine but is there a method to put the next coil on without a 10 minute struggle with the coil connector being in such a confined area ?

Best advice I can give is to go VERY CAREFULLY and engage the connector body before you try screwing the outer threaded ring to the mating connector on the detector itself.
Also those 4 pins in the connector can get BENT VERY EASILY if you don't have the connectors lined up just right. There is a little "tab" on the connector body that should be lined-up with a slot on the other connector. There really isn't much room down in that cavity where the connector is. Patience is a virtue I have found!

I have worked out that if I hold the coil in place 5-6 inches from the connector to remove the spring tension it makes it much easier to line up the pins so you don't risk bending the pins. Took me a while but I eventually figure things out lol.
