Need help disassembling rear shock.

So i've decided to rebuild the rear shock on my KLX400.

I've gotten it down to the point of tapping the bottom cover off and I am ready to press in the seal body and remove the circlip before pulling the whole thing out. But pushing in on the seal body and letting go results in the seal body springing back up into position like it still has pressure on it, but the valve core is completely out so there's no more pressure left inside.

Not really sure what to do about that.

Does this help? Get some cans of brake cleaner and clean everything off.

No shit, clean the dam thing before you start.

I did clean it.

I did eventually get the bladder out. WHen pushing it down, if I pushed it hard to one side it made a hissing sound for a second and all that extra pressure went away. Then I was able to pull the clip out and remove the bladder.

Thanks for the links!
