Alright everyone.

As it says at the top really. Can anyone shed some light on how i get the shock off me frame?
I've read the faq's on the orange website but it doesn't make any sense to me.

Oh and if it makes any difference its a manitou shock.

thanks in advance for any help!

Its pretty complicated, so I've written an in-depth, step by step guide for you below:

Step 1: Undo the bolts
Step 2: There is no step 2

ha ha ha. nice...

im slightly with trig on this though... is it stuck or something? tell us what you have done so far? and why you cant get it any further.

might help if you unbolt the shock shuttle so you can get a bit more wiggle room....

Sorry for the sarcasm, but either you've missed something out of the problem description or you're just asking a daft question, i.e. how do I remove a bolt - err, you unsrew it

It's ok trig I was expecting some degree of sarcasm asking such a question!

Right i've undone both bolts at the bottom and taken the top mount off the frame. then swung like f~#k on it and it won't come off! It seems as though something goes into the frame stopping it pulling out.

Is the piece that the bolts screw into like a bolt through axel so needs pushing through or is it just a really tight fit into the frame?

i'll sit back and await more deserved comments on my apparent stupidness!!!

sounds like some one has done up the shock bolts too much and pinched the mount, pretty sure there is no shaft in there that runs through the shock mounts.... is there anything flush with the  holes in the shock mount that you can see ? can you take a pic ?

no there is. when you undo the bolts, one of them should really stay attatched to a steel sleeve that runs through. this is threaded internally and is what the bolts thread into.

thread both bolts half back in, then lightly tap one side, and the other one will push out the same amount as the collar slides free. then yank it out and your shock will drop right out (dinting your frame)

easy.

You are using "Allen Keys" to undo the bolts aren't you?
And not, I dunno, toothbrushes or grapefruit?

Thanks Nicholas. sorted it now and no dints!

Though i do think Trig should spend less time on his incorrect step by step guides and more on his pretty weak put downs!

This entire topic feels like it should be on southern downhill and not gravity slaves.  Forums are for people to ask questions no matter how stupid you think they are they don't deserve to be ripped.  Like I said its not southern downhill.  Get over yourselves......  No names mentioned (trig)!
