Rockshox U Turn adjustment problem

Anyone else out there had the U Turn adjust dial gone stiff?
The dial on my 2008 revelation 426 air's has gone stiff making travel adjustment difficult. I see there is a service guide on SRAM website anyone used this?
Any advice gratefully accepted.

    Sometimes the dial needs cleaning and greasing.

    Had the same problem on my pikes. And as Supersonic pointed out, If you undo the little allen key and take the adjuster knob off you might find one or two rusty bearings that are crying out to be greased :)

    Assuming they're similar to my pikes that is! Worked for me anyway

    The U-Turn dial on my Recons was really stiff, just regreased the bearings and it is smooth and easy now!

    Unscrew the allen bolt and there should be 3 bearings underneath - just re-grease 'em and it should be alot better.

    Thanks! I guess I really should have looked first :oops:
