Here is a RAW side-lever in pieces...
The work is being done by Our Man Swift220....

The internals is just like any Rapid....
You can refer to my tech sticky post or do search for the many service posts done on this subject........
Also RAW has a pdf on removing the main valve...

The first place to start when checking for a leak..
All the external sources. To do this, just use a simple soap solution.
Spray/drip it on to all junctions and bleed hole on the reg....

If you happen to located around the tube/reg-QF junction...remember this is also two more O-rings in the QF housing..
here is a photo of my straight. not 90 degree Raw QF. You can just see the 2 O-ring in the housing..it just slides off the reg body!

So if everything seems to be air-tight on the outside... Then it must be the internals....
The only source of leaks is the valve-body O-rings or the Valve-stem..
The parts need to pulled and check.....

Btw.... Just thinking about this....
If you track sown the leak to the internals...
The source could be the burnt bronze filter they been installing for awhile now!!
They are a Pain... small pieces break off and cause scratches/gouges to the valve-body on the sealing area where the valve-stem seats!
