top end cap off
push chrome down
pull spring and spacers down
flip out the cup that holds them down
remove spring and packers. note the spring is tapered at the bottom, not the steel washer on the packers.
poor away the oil, work the rod to get more out
look down the hole, a washer is on a steel ring
turn upside down
a washer and ring will fall out, note fitment.
undo M6 underneath
innards will fall out now
a big alloy cup goes in the bottom and may have stayed there. get it out as well, note fitment
remove dust seal
reverse thrust the legs away from each other to pull apart, same as any other legs.
note, the dust seals have to be short to stay in. so do the seals really. I end up grinding 0.5mm off them on the sideface of my wall grinder and then the circlip fits nicely. and still the dust seals don't want to stay down!
anyone know the correct oil measurement on these? just put 625cc per leg in a set.
