Broken belt clip on battery for c18 drill
« on: September 29, 2019, 02:57 PM »
I think this is the right section
Had my C18 in my belt hanging from the front not the side, had other stuff hanging off my belt. Long story short, I bent over to lift something and broke the plastic fingers that hold the belt clip on. The belt clip was attached to the battery. I went on the festool USA site, service, and I cannot find a schematic to find a part #. It appears that you can pop off the remaining piece of plastic in battery and replace it, I hope. Any one have any information on this. Thank you

I doubt you can order that part by itself.  But your best bet is to call Festool to verify.  I did try to remove the plastic clip from my battery pack.  Moderate force applied with a screwdriver didn't release the clip, it looked like it wanted to snap off.  And I didn't see any release tabs under the clip that I could squeeze.  It looks like it's only meant to be inserted into the battery pack, not removed.

Thank you. I called Festool this morning and they are sending me a part. Not sure, and the rep was not sure this is the correct part. But, it appears clip and like plastic piece are all one piece. I will find out when I get it. Thanks for your help.
