Just a thought...
After you have replaced your seal you could always refill it by the drain hole.

How are you intending on getting the seals off without taking the tubes & springs out?

They're not USDs, so just fill them up before you put the top cap back on like any other right way up fork.

Again, I've never even looked at one up close, but I'd be amazed if it isn't a standard, unscrew the top, pop the spring out, fart around with the damper bolt for 2 hours type fork.

Get the workshop manual from the sticky at the top of the forum. It reckons its in spanish, but you'll get the gist from the pictures.
