I've seen a video on Youtube about how to rebuild a Fox one but can you rebuild 5th element rear air shocks in the same way?
Also, are seal kits available in the UK?
Really frustrating as it looks so simple :? :roll: :D

If there is no air in it, go at it!

I've figured it out :D
I need a schraeder valve removal tool(on its way) so the bottom part of the can can slide off.
Then its of to the hydraulic suplies man for o-rings and seals :D
