how are you guys doing this, the manual is saying to take the base valve off, just to take the cap off?

is this correct?

or can you just add oil in throught the air blead hole?

Do we have to guess what we're adding oil to, or are you going to tell us?

I tried to add oil through the air bleed but it didn't work, when you take the forks apart you will see why, the air hole is tiny.
Unscrew the damper assembly from the forks then you can slide the outer tube down and add the oil.
