    Hey man, I am no expert so I didn't respond sooner, but I see you aren't getting many responses. My buddy came over and showed me how to get into mine. Take a strap wrench and get it apart. Once its apart (air out and cable off) the thing is seriously simple inside. Mine was not working at all and gritty. We removed all grease, cleaned it out, put slick honey all over the seals and mechanisms, put it back together, pumped it up and it worked like new. I am not sure what they are selling in the service kit, but I would recommend trying the above out, unless it is seriously jacked.

    So the collar has normal clockwise thread? I have been trying to get it open with strap wrench and friend. It's very tight.

    I've done a couple but it's been a while. The issues I had to deal with were the expanding collet was disintegrating inside the housing leaving pieces of expansion teeth in the bottom of the housing. If this starts to happen, it damages the internal wall of the housing causing crappy performance after repair so if you start having notchy performance, don't wait to fix it. This is predicated on Specialized still using the collet based adjustment.
    Always ride with a purpose.

    Let the air out. Unscrew the collar with a strap wrench (yup, it's tight!). Push the remote lever on your handlebar and just pull that sucker up and out of the outer tube. Watch those brass keys. Don't lose 'em.

    Wipe it all down including inside the part still in your bike. Push some Slick Honey up into the seal inside the collar, on the brass keys and on the post itself. Grab the remote lever and push the inner post back into the frame. Tighten the collar purty good, pressurize to 25 with it fully extended and go! It should feel amazing again.

    These posts are so frikkin cheap and easy to service it's absurd. There are some o-ring seals in there if you want to pull it even more apart and replace those. Metric Nitrile N-70 23x1.5 and 25x1.5. One is just below the wiper in the collar the other is at the bottom of the post by the cable anchor behind the snap ring.

    Enjoy!

    What if the post tends to not hold air pressure? Source of the issue would be what?

    My guess would be seals/o-rings. It's totally mechanical post.

    Surely it would loose air if the top section of the post gets scratched? I don't have one of these posts but I've ordered one. Had to get one imported as they don't sell the 31.6 post in the UK.

    Specialized has some videos on Vimeo for Command post IR service. Should be similar:

    6-month service:


    1-year service:
