A "RockShox Threaded Baseplate Removal Tool" is required to remove and service the damper and air cartrdige on older RockShox SID forks.

To do this, I use a Hillman M10-1.50 Flanged Hex Nut. It fits perfectly and I'm able to grab the flange with a pair of vice grips to give me the necessary leverage to remove the baseplates. A package of four cost less than a dollar.

The downside to this is you can't use a torque wrench. If you're not comfortable with torquing by hand (to the inch-pound level) then I'd suggest taking a different route. ;)

As noted in other posts (and the service manual) these are reverse threaded. "Righty Loosey" and "Lefty Tighty".
