    Fox 40 FIT Damper Service

    I have a Fox 40 FIT that I want to service this year. I have done like 2 dozen open bath services on Air and Talas but never the FIT cartridge.

    The only info I can find on a FIT teardown is the link below. Is this a FULL FIT service or is there a simpler one that just does fluid?

    Like I said, done a mess of service but not FIT.

    Thanks in advance...

    Which FIT cartridge is it?

    Here is one:
    36/40 FIT Cartridge Service
    And here is the other:

    You could probably get away with dumping the fluid from it and bleeding it with new but then while its out you might as well strip it down IMHO and do it properly.

    Thanks Rick,

    Its the 36/40. Not sure why I couldn't find it... oh yeah, I'm dopey.
    I agree with you on the full tear down.

    Thanks again!
