fork trouble

Morning all, I'm having a problem with adjustment on my forks,(950 adventure,2003) the black knob on the top ,rebound I think is just turning endlessly round, is this a common problem? how difficult is it to repair, sorry for the short message guys and gals but at work so being sneaky.

Year and mileage? EDIT And you wrote year at least Im just tired and stupid.

My guess would be seized rebound valve, this is from my dads 2005 with 30000km on it or something like that.



Then the plastic adjuster that slots into a threaded part that moves up and down broke so now its freewheeling:

Thanks Johan, there seems to be some text missing from your post, oh and the bike has 52,000miles on her and apart from some other minor issues she's fine.

Just brought up some tips I have learnt over the years, some from here.

More thorough breakdown of how to take apart forks in the seal change post.
