Not sure, but does Trek give any customer support on their website?

I wrote through their - contact us page and got first reply but then went silent. Finally I have opened the the suspension myself and found that the threads locking the piston rod with the fork had opened and when operating lockout the thread was rotating which should not rotate and not the lockout itself. So presently back on the pedals again and having happy cycling.

Happy cycling to all
