Default Quick showa question.

     

Quick showa shock question?

I forgot my manual at home and am at my parents house working on my bike. Im changing the rear spring but cant figure out how to get the spring retainer off? I loosened the spanner nuts but the piece by the rebound dampening wont budge.? Hows this come off, is there some trick?

Push the collar down against the spring to expose the bottom portion and remove the keeper ring.

First off, find your safety glasses, put them on. I can usually slip a screwdriver through the gap in the retaining ring and pry against the spring if you cant collapse the spring enough with your hands to get the ring free.

if you losen the top of the spring so it's lose, you can just use a rubber mallet to tap it and it will slide up, revealing the retaining ring, then off she comes.
