I felt some grit under the compression bezel on my 2005 Talas (Pushed). I unscrewed the allen screw on top of the rebound knob to try to get the dirt underneath cleaned off. When I realized that wasn't going to work, I screwed the knob back on and now it won't turn either way. Is it broke?

When you unscrewed the allen screw, did you hold the rebound knob to prevent it from moving or did you let it turn till it stopped and then torqued on the screw?

If you didn't hold the rebound knob while removing or installing the screw, you've probably jammed the the rebound adjustment at one of its limits. Depending on how much force you put on it and how hard its jammed, it may or may not be broken. All you can try to do is try to get the rebound knob to move and hope.

If you did hold the rebound knob whilst messing with it, then I've got no idea what you've done to the fork.

Dude, thanks for the quick response!

No, I didn't hold the knob. It clicked all the way out as I was unscrewing, and then click all the way in when I screwed it back on. I didn't torque too hard either way. So how hard should I try to turn the knob? If it isn't broken now, I'd hate to change that fact.
