Underbody lance

I bought an underbody lance from autobrite back in 2011. It worked great with my Nilfisk C120. I've since bought an E140.3 and need to change the connector. I've tried both clockwise and anticlockwise but can't seem to remove the brass connector.

Any ideas on how to remove it?

Can you post a pic? If it's metal to metal (ie mild steel and brass) it could be seized in with galvanic corrosion?

Probably attached with permanent threadlock. I have heard that heat can loosen the connection. Someone on here successfully tried their gas burner on the hob, although I don't endorse that method.

It will most likely just be screwed on, and if it is it will 99.9% likely be a standard thread and will need turning anti-clockwise off the end of the rod.

Chances are some sort of threadlock or sealant has been used.

A little blast with a blow torch and and couple of pairs of grips should see it come off easily enough.

It will be screwed on with a standard clockwise thread. i.e anticlockwise to unscrew.

Grip the barrel as tight as you can (if possible in a vice) and then unscrew the end piece with a large pair of grips.

As fatdazza has said above, get a couple of pairs of mole grips, and itíll definitely come off. Itís probably just stuck as I canít see them ever using thread lock on a lance.

A little bit of heat would be a good shout too. Just watch your flippers though. Lol

Thanks all. I think the bit I was unsure of which way the nilfisk adaptor was threaded on. I've tried mole grips and brute strength with no movement. I was going to use the breaker bar on it next and didn't want to mess things up.
