The foot nut on the left hand leg appears to be tightened up really tight.

When i try and undo it, it twists the pumping rod round with it, thus it wont undo.

Does anyone have any expereince taking these things apart, who may be able to help?

Thanks

David

Unfortunately Ive tried that. Ive also tried it with preload added and the fork compressed

It seems to be stuck fast.

Anymore ideas?

Does the top of the cartridge stick up through the top caps on those forks? If so, you should be able to grab a hold of it there, although I can't remember if it will just turn on its own or not. It may work if you can tighten it, just give it a quick jolt the other way.
