RockShox Recon 351 Solo Air Forks-Lockout Issue

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

The lockout function on my forks no longer works.When the motion control switch is open the forks appear to have the full range of travel but when switched to the lockout setting the amount of travel remains the same.
Anyone have any tips or suggestions for a remedy to this problem? The forks are 4 years old and have had a major service approx 2 years ago.

Thanks in advance!

Suspension stuff up?

A few months ago I serviced my own forks. Not too hard following the instructions & with great result. There is one result that I'm actually very happy about, but it is a stuff up. That is, when my 'lock out' is on, my forks are quite stiff, but the suspension still works.

So now I have two settings. Instead of 'on' or 'off' like it's designed to be, it's 'on' or '70% off' which I think is BRILLIANT! Just what I wanted. So, how did this happen? How can I make sure this happens again next service!

Suspension Foam Ring Cleaning?

I am servicing my forks for the first time. The SRAM website docs are pretty clear, & the YouTube SRAM videos are great. I'm ready to reattach the lower legs, but should I bother cleaning the foam rings inside the dust seal?

They really aren't that dirty, & I'd rather not replace the bushings completely considering my bike has only done 100hrs of light use. Nothing loose.
