    Fox DHX air 5.0 Will only extend about halfway.

    Time for a rebuild or is there a simple solution?

    Thanks!

    Release all the air and re-inflate. Still no good pull the air / re-install can then re-inflate.

    stuck down!

    Becareful while unscrewing the air can. It might have some high negative air pressure built up in it!
    Put a screwdriver wrapped with a towel in the bottom eyelet to "catch" the air can IF it blows off.
    Put some ear plugs also!
