I took the spring loaded dial part of the rear shock undoing the wire then the dial the spring released itself and then I cleaned it out and put it back on reloading the spring (with great difficulty) I think I tested it at this point and it was working (I think). I then let the air out unscrewed the cylinder and cleaned the gunk from the seals. I then soaked the hard sponge to remove dirt and replaced it with 15w Rockshox oil greased the inner air seal and the outer crud seal and replaced and re-pressurised. After that a lot of oil was leaking out to the point it would drip with several compressions. Also when compressed and released air would bubble out the opening in the oil puddle although it doesn't seem to lose any air pressure in the shock at all even a 40 mile ride and a night.... any ideas? Thanks.
