    Help dismounting X2 shock off of HD3

    Need to send the shock in for service, but can't dismount it from the front eyelet. As far as I know, there's a pin inside, but I can't get it out. Any suggestions? Thank you !!!

    Use a ratchet with 5mm allen while applying slight pressure on the bolt from the opposite side with a small screw driver or pick. I found that I have to rotate the ratchet pretty quickly to get the bolt to come out.

    There's cap head bolts on both sides.
    remove one bolt completely
    Remove the other bolt partially, maybe 3/4 of the way.
    Insert the 4mm allen key, tool, socket etc and gently tap with a hammer until bolt head makes contact
    You should be able to grab the other side and pull it out, but if not
    push the remain bolt out with an allen key
