SDS Platform/Tank Plastics/Splitting

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The centerpiece of the tank plastics is plastic welded with retaining lock washers through/around holes in the side pieces.

The lock washers can be detached either with very focused heat application (a soldering iron works; a hot air gun will be less precise) or just taking a pair of pliers and carefully twisting each weld back and forth until it deteriorates and can be broken off.
The centerpiece you remove will no longer be joinable the same way, but you can take a fresh one and make plastic welds to join it to the side pieces.

As of mid-2017, the Charge Tank plastic centerpiece is separately available under part number 24-08137 for $40 (without the plug bracket that is about $100, and without the retaining washers). The Power Tank plastics might presumably be separately available.
