I'm wanting to replace the sac in my sf230 but I can't see a clear point of separation between the section and barrel. I have a horrible feeling it has been somehow fused and I'm nervous of applying heat. Can someone describe exactly where it should be?

A picture would help.

 

The joint is between the section and the barrel of course.  A hairdryer is the means of applying heat. I have found that sometimes, repeated heating and cooling are necessary. 

 

I have re-sacced hundreds of Swans; you should not have a problem.  If after heating, you cannot bear to touch the barrel you have gone too far!

 

Good luck.

The joint is right at the end of the barrel threads where the smooth gripping section begins.

It will be friction fit, and not threaded.

Heat and test on  your lips. When it is starting to get too hot to put on your lips, it is ready. Give it a twist.
