I have acquired a pair of the above with my summer project. Unfortunately they need an overhaul. I'm in the process of taking them apart however i don't seem to be able to remove the lower tubes.
I have been following the guide below:http://www.mtb-kataloge.de/Bikekataloge ... judyxc.pdf
I have removed the crown bolts and MCU spring assembly (whats left of it!).
I then removed the 6mm bolt at the bottom of each lower tube. Behind the 6mm bold on one of the lower tubes there is a star bolt?!, i have also removed this, at this point a small amount of oil came out? Does this need to be removed in order to remove the lower tubes? Is there meant to be one on each side? the above manual does not mention this.
Should the lower tubes just pull away or am i missing something?
I'm planning on replacing the MCU with springs however i want to make sure they are not beyond repair before doing so.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
