    How the hell...

    ... excuse me for my cursing, but how do I remove the upper nylon "thing" (the white one near the top), so that I can replace the seals on the inside of the nylon "thing"?
    Does I come off at the top (near the rebound adjuster) or in the bottom near the shims (golden like stuff near the bottom)?

    So all you experts, please help a Cannondale friend in need:-)!

    You don't. The top cap is press fit, as are associated lower assemblies. The only way it comes off it at the factory. Luckily, the top end rarely, if ever, leaks, and if it does, most likely it's due to shaft damage, not seal wear. Sorry....

    Yeah, I've learned its best to leave any pressed-on 'things' alone...
