loosen the outer cap (its a Shimano hollowtech bb tool) this will allow you to spin the cartridge. (use the blue lockout lever to see where you want it). make sense?

yes i know. when you loosen the outer collar you can spin the lockout lever and have it positioned wherever you want it (spinning the damper shaft in the oil cylinder). Then you tighten the collar back down. its that simple,

Eli, make sure you take all the air out first. I had a customer try to do this and shot his damper carterage into his roof...No joke.

no need unless your damper is already unthreaded (bad in the first place) hes not unthreading the cartridge. just the top cap.

Yeah Capt. Pabst is right, you don't need to let the air out. It will make it a bit easier to turn the lever to where you want it. He is also right about the tool, a Shimano outboard bearing bottom bracket wrench is the tool you need Shimano part # TL-FC32, you will need to loosen the top cap of the fork and turn the lever. You will also need to do the steps you have done and remove the damper knob and lockout lever other wise you cannot remove the top cap if that is what you wish to do. You also could leave the damper knob on and the lockout lever in place and loosen the top cap then rotate the lever to the desired postion, then tight the top cap back down.

If that happened, there are larger issues afoot than whatever he bargained for. :yikes:
