Hi guys,

I've been trying to remove the lowers from my fork to service, but I'm having difficulties getting the lowers off.

I have loosened the bolts and tapped them with a mallet.

So far, they now slide down easily about two inches as if they're going to come off, but then there's clear resistance. You can feel something knocking against something. Have I actually not freed them from the press-fit or is something screwed? I don't want to go hammering any harder and break something.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Cheers
