CAUTION: Do not damage strut assembly piston rod when removing components from strut assembly.

  1.  Remove strut mounting insulator.
  2.  Install Tool (A) to strut assembly and secure it in a vise.

Tool number : ST35652000 ( - )

CAUTION: When installing the Tool to strut assembly, wrap a shop cloth around strut to protect from damage.

DISASSEMBLY

  1. Using a suitable tool, compress coil spring between spring upper seat and lower seat (strut assembly) until coil spring is free.

    CAUTION: Be sure the tool is securely attached to the coil spring before compressing coil spring.

  2. Check coil spring with a spring compressor between spring upper seat and lower seat (strut assembly) is free. And then remove piston rod lock nut while securing the piston rod tip so that piston rod does not turn.
  3. Remove strut mounting bearing, spring upper seat, and bound bumper as a set.
  4. Remove bound bumper from spring upper seat.
  5. After removing coil spring with a spring compressor, then gradually release a spring compressor.
