You use a large flathead screwdriver and pop up the tab behind the heel piece. This let's the heel slide in the track to allow you to move the heel fore/aft to adjust forward pressure. You then move it to where you want , flip the tab down so the heel locks into the next set of holes in the track. When you place your lock your boot into the binding the edge of the heel directly adjacent to the tab should be as close as possible to the center of the scribed lines on the top of the tab. But it is my understanding anywhere in the scribed line area will work.
Try just putting your new boot in the binding and see where the heel lines up on the tab. You may not have to move it. The FF heel is not infinetly adjustable (or micro adjustable) like many heels for foprward pressure.
Thanks, I managed to do the RF and the FF17, the FF18 however is giving me problems and i am not sure what the problem is...if any.
I disengaged the freeflex, then popped up the tab behind the heel piece, put the boot in the binding but did not click in, and moved the heel piece so that it is as close to the boot as possible. Then I pushed the tab back down to lock the setting. When all was said and done one ski has three slots behind the scribed area and one has two. The heel piece is centered on the marks when the boot is clicked in on the binding that has three slots, on the other its almost to the end. I also noticed that the tip of the metal that connects the toe and heel pieces together that can be seen behind the heel piece is not in the same location on both bindings.
Lastly, when open, the heel piece is actually above the pad that pushed the brakes up. If needed, can these things be redrilled?
What do you think?
