Yip, you just need to purchase a kranzle fitting. Really easy to change over

Only if you have a vice. The Autobrite lances tend to use thread lock on the attachment and can be an absolute bugger to get off.

Strip it as much as you can, to remove all the plastic, then soak the brass body in very hot / boiling water for a few minutes and it should help dissolve the daft amounts of threadlock that AutoBrite use - that's what I did and it helped a lot

I thought it would just be a thread sealant so would come off quite easy.

Im trying to remember how mine was. I think the rear plastic part screws onto the brass tube, the top wheel is just held on by a screw and the front plastic nozzle was held o by a sliding pin (?).

You end up with just the metal parts and those are the ones which are loctited and need big spanners to separate - so thats the bit that needs hot water to loosen the threadlock.

Also make sure you have a roll of plumbers tape to go on the threads for reassembly - much better than threadlock.
