CAUTION: Handling the damper.
(a) Do not disassemble the damper because the cylinder is filled with gas.
(b) If the damper is damped, drill a 2.0 - 3.0 mm (0.079 - 0.118 in.) hole in the bottom of the removed damper cylinder to completely release the high-pres-sure gas.
(c) When drilling, chips may fly out so work carefully.
(d) The gas is colorless, odorless and not poisonous.
(e) When working, handle the damper carefully. Never score or scratch the exposed part of the piston rod, and never allow paint or oil to get on it.
(f) Do not turn the piston rod and cylinder with the damper fully extended.
