I just bought a used focus paralane and it uses focus's proprietary RAT through axle. My problem is that the two-part nut on the rear axle stopped turning, making it impossible to tighten / loosen the pressure of the lever. The two parts seem to be stuck together very strongly.

On the same bike on the front axle, these parts are separated and the nut turns freely.

Did anyone had any issue with this? I'm feeling that I'm missing something... or did I just have a broken through axle in the rear? Thanks.

I'm interested in this, I ride an Izalco Max disc with RAT axles.

I've had a look on the net and found this. Part way down there's someone who had the same issue, which they solved with pliers

Just to post the happy ending of my story for the future reader: I visited my LBS and the bike mechanic had stronger hands then me and with a little bit of effort he screwed the two parts apart (the nut and the small plate). I still think that it's a little bit a design issue that even accidentally you can screw the nut together with a plate so strong that it's almost impossible to separate them. Anyway, problem solved.
