Yo guys
Half way through doing the seals and free piston mod on kyb sss forks, Just noticed one side the compression adjust is not turning at all. Wasn’t like that before I started so wondering what I’ve done haha. Currently have the base valve apart I can hear the rod inside moving up and down, needle doesn’t seem to be moving in or out?
Any help appreciated thanks Photo

These are not spring loaded. The oil pressure will push them back.

Go full soft and then push the needle back up.

Unfortunately I can’t turn the adjuster at all and the needle doesn’t want to move much either

There's not much to them so I'd remove the shaft from the cap to get a better look. The adjuster threads up and down in the cap pushing on an aluminum rod in the shaft that pushes the needle. I've seen them broken before where they just spin, but never stuck.
