You will need some spring compressors. I made some using 12mm threaded rod and right angle brackets. Jack up and support your car, (or hoist it if you have available). remove front wheels. Disconnect brake line from the clip on the strut. Best if you dsconnect the brake line and plug off both ends. remove cotter (split pin) pin from steering arm off rack and remove tie rod from steering arm on strut. Put a jack onder the strut to enable drop and lift control whilst removing from body. Once supported remove three (12mm spanner) nuts holding strit in at top under bonnet. Remove clamp bolt from base of strut. Note position of strut in bottom clamp. This is located with dimples in new struts. Should now be able to drop suspension and manipulate strut out of base clamp and from car. Fit spring clamps (at least 2 needed per spring) and tighten until pressure is seen to release from end clamps. Keep spring clamps in place. Undo strut top nut, a 6mm Allen key and 17mm spanner. make sure new struts have Allen key insert in end as tightening is otherwise difficult. Note order of dismantling as small "flat" bearing and locators are tricky. reassemble onto new strut in order, renew seals and bearing if you have them. Refit end nut on strut rod and tighten. make sure ends of spring are correctly located in end plates. Slowly undo spring compressor rods. Assembly can now be fitted into car, noing locating dimple, position of brake line clamp and gradually raise suspension to relocate strut top 3 studs. Refit steering arm tie rod and brake line. Make sure you crack bleed the brake line joint when remaking. Do the usual rechecks. Refit wheel. Job done.
