I am needing to service my fork as well as replace sheared rebound adjuster. [forks approx 5-6 years old] Anyone any experience of servicing these forks or know where I could get parts from?

I was in the same boat a while ago. Minute 2:00 with a sheared rebound adjuster and in need of a good fettling. Getting a replacement for the rebound adjuster is not a simple task. They are like rocking horse poo and you can't just buy the adjuster - it's part of a kit that I couldn't seem to get hold of. I tried various online retailers, LBSs (who mostly didn't have a clue) and eBay with no luck.
I gave up, as it was taking more time looking for the part and how to sort it out than it was worth. That plus I would be very cross when the new rebound adjuster sheared off (and it would've done because they are shite) after going to the trouble of sourcing one. I ended up buying some new forks (and I kind of wanted some new forks anyhow). The DT Swiss XMM 140s I got are a decent upgrade.
As for the service, you can download the service manuals from their website and you can get cheaply get seal kits that include a gazillion o-rings for all the forks/shocks and I got one of these to service my 3-way shock with.
Looks like I'm stuffed with the fork then!!
Contact Manitou directly - I've found them to be helpful - they should at least be able to direct you to a supplier.
