Is it like a pin that sticks up in the middle?

Attach a pic
yeah the pin in the middle of the right side bolt on the lower

Grab the bolt with vise grips and see if you can turn it. If you get it out take it to your bike shop and see if they have one without the pin... It's a dumb bolt to stop people without "special tools " from working in it..

Would a boxxer RC rebound damper fit a lyrik RC2L?

No it's not the debonair spring has a different shaft end then the 2 step it won't fit into the lowers

I have a mico rebound and damper for my totem thats currently moco. apparently you need a new damper/rebound tube too which i realized after tearing the whole fork down.... does anyone have any leads on one? the only one I've found, and I've looked a lot, is at a romanian online dealer who apparently doesnt ship to the us. i sent an email out to rockshox as well but haven't gotten a response yet. Its convenient you can find the rebound and damper easily but not the tube....... this is the part number 11.4015.427.020

Need help. Just serviced the air side of my solo air Totem and when I put it back together it feels like the negative side is not equalizing with the positive side. I put all my weight on it and it doesn't move AT ALL. It worked before I replaced the o-rings and other small parts in the rebuild kit. I've taken it apart twice now, same result. The air spring is NOT the one with blue top if that helps, if that one is better I will get it. The inner tubes are flawless, the fork has seen little use and is in great condition. What could I have done wrong?

Thanks, Brenda

What did you use to grease the spring .. and if you look that the piston head at the top there is a circlip and a wavy spring it allows the piston head to move a bit to equalize the chamber's if it doesn't move up and down that's probably your issue

Thank you for the reply. I used suspension oil for lube and the piston head moves, that was the first thing I checked.

Check if there is any grease blocking the air transfer port
