    I decided to put one of the fox air volume spacers in 2011 RP23 BV high volume unit but am now stuck as when I try to screw the air can there seems to be a sleeve that moves round and up and down a couple of mm but not unscrew and there is only about 50mm below this which is impossible to grip on to to unscrew.

    I now don’t know whether the sleeve is tightened up as it still goes round, I would like to avoid the eye rolling at the LBS if anyone can help.

    I have the very same thing, although I haven’t got around to taking a proper look at it yet.

    Are you talking abour the outer air sleeve?

    If so remove the retaining C clip at the bottom and slide the outer sleeve off the main unit (you’ll have to give it a bit of a yank as there is a lip and it has two o rings). This then will allow you to unscrew the main body

    Thanks for the reply steve, there looks there is a seal with a slight gap is that the C clip. If so how would you get it out as I don’t want to damage it.

    I use one of these on the lower (narrower) part of the air can:-

    No need to disassemble the sleeve 🙂

    All sorted now, like you said just needed to ease out the clip and gently slide the sleeve down. Used the medium spacer and its meant I can drop nearly 30psi for same sag.
    Just have to see if it makes any differance on the trail now.
