    Fox DHX 4.0 Air rebound knob Jammed/Stuck

    OK, i hadn't moved this since having the air sleeve serviced. I figured i wanted two more clicks of rebound, but i could not move it.

    The only way i can turn the red rebound knob, clockwise or counter, is to jam an allen wrench in there and push relatively hard. A snapping click occurs every 7th click, the rest move somewhat smooth, although there is some grinding in there that is typical of dirt being in with the knob/gear.

    Any suggestions? Is my rebound knob really messed up or is it just gunked up?

    Anyone have similar issues?

    Yes, it gets dirt in there and causes it to bind. I have used a spray bottle and sprayed it with water to wash out the sand. Then a small allen key to move it.
