A friends Vanquish 440 had the bolt that mounts the coil to the post strip out. Is there an easy way to fix that? I asked when he bought he and he is checking, but i don't know that it would be a warranty issue anyway. He also says the latch between the post slips sometimes as well. I don't have a Vanquish yet, so am reaching out to see what suggestions folks can offer before I go there tonight to try to get it all fixed up (he has limited mobility so can't always fix things that might be easy for others.) Thanks in advance!

Don't know the bolt size on Vanquish, but the nylon bolts for toilet seats works on many.

Lots of 'Bolt Extractors' for not much money on the market.

Call Minelab, they might even send you a bolt too.

Ive noticed the set screws for the arm rest and shaft will loosen over time. Going to loctite them.

Vanquish coil mount bolts are different as I recall from the 440 I had. With a pro pack 540 on way I’m hoping it’s to facilitate quicker coil switch outs.
