It's super easy to do, they sell a oil and seal kit for 15.00 and 10 mins. Check YouTube fox has a video that they made.
Mine had bigger problems.

I think Pink Bike has a Youtube vid too. All floats use the same kit (pretty sure). The only "special" tools are a small flat screwdriver with the tip bent -this helps to pry the 2nd rubber seal wedged between two white neoprene.

Another tip is for the last step, threading the body back on the canister: back off compression damping. Its tricky to get the threads restarted. I often enlist Rob @ Bikeway for that step but all shocks are different.

Yes, tim is right, that washer between the two white seals is the hardest part.

Next dental visit ask if they have any old tools, you're paying for them ;-{).
