    Cleaning your Nox 800

    I am just back from the beach.

    I have on seen on this site recently about the coil covers and some people say to take them off and some say not to when cleaning
    So should I take it off since the unit was in sand and some salt water?
    If so, how do you remove the coil cover? Does it just unsnap?
    Thanks

    Okay, so it doe snot hurt the cover to remove it and it is best to clean the coil.

    I figured as much, especially since salt water would be so corrosive.

    Thank you

    Although, it looks like the coil is on backwards. I suppose it would not really matter though.

    It does look in video like coil is on backwards but it would not matter in performance.

    I thought as much. In a hurry one day changing coils, when I began wrapping the cable, I seen that I had it on "backwards", and I just KNEW it would have bugged me to no end.

    If you use a hairdryer and warm the coil cover it will make it easier to remove the cover.

    If I am not mistaken my stock coil does not have black resin to seal it up, it's white. On my 6 inch coil it is black like the video shows. Going to check it now to be sure.
    *Update: Checked and it is black resin underneath sealing the coil. It does have some dimples in it though and a scratch or two. Never ran it without a cover so no idea how it got scratched.

    So removed the coil cover and found quite a bit of sand inside
    Washed everything out and now letting it sit over night to dry
    Thanks for everyone’s input

    I remove the coil cover and clean the sand out after every beach hunt. It helps to reduce any false signals.
