Have you tried asking Mojo or TFT if they can service it for you?

Mojo are the main importers and service agents for Fox. TFT is Tim Flooks, who does servicing for Rock Shox, Fox, Marzocchi etc. You'll find either with a quick Google :)

Oh dear I just bought and fitted this. BTW it was full of air when it arrived, and held full pressure for 36h. . .

Have you taken it apart at all?

check the valve core with some soapy water, 36h is quite a slow leak

It hadn't lost any pressure after 36h, when I depressurised it it blew out a ittle oil mist which may have cleared something. The op said he was going away for a couple of weeks, like him I haven't been able to find how old it is or a manual. The compression damping adjuster (left of picture) does not return on it's own but does do it's job.
