You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
-Again, there are no good manuals for this car, only older models, not the 1990-92.
Anyways, you will need to rent a spring compressor from Autozone or the like, they will usually refund you when you bring it back. Jack the car and remove the tire on the side you want to start. Compress the spring with your new tool so it doesn't take off when you detach the strut. You will need to remove the bolts connecting the strut to the wheel hub. I believe they are either 14mm or 16mm and there are two of them. Then remove the top nut of the strut. You will need to pop the hood to gain access. It's the one in the center of the housing on the strut tower. The strut should pull out now. Keep the spring compressed until you have the new one back in place. It really doesn't take too long. Good luck!
how much is it going to cost me to replace the back struts on my Nissan maxima
how to remove rear struts on 2005 chevy cobalt
BIG JOB and you need to have the front end aligned before you drive it. TAke it to a garage.
After some negotiation, I was able to get a Nissan dealer to replace them for about $600, including parts and labor.
It has shocks in the rear I believe. Not struts. Struts are in front.
To replace the front struts on a 2000 model Hyundai Sonata, you will first need to remove the tires. There will be 3 nuts on top of the strut mount. You will need to remove the 2 bolts that connect from the strut to the knuckle. Then you will need to remove the ABS sending unit as well as the front brake hose. Once these components are removed, you can remove the strut. In order to remove the strut, you will need a special tool to compress the spring. Once the struts are removed, you can safely replace them with new struts.
When replacing struts, ALWAYS replace them in pairs.
Compress the shock spring with a spring compressor. Remove the top strut bolt. Remove the bottom strut bolt. Reverse the process to install the new struts.
Trunk struts are mounted to the back of the trunk. Locate the mounting hardware and remove it. Be sure to use the proper replacement struts and replace each side. Do one side at a time to avoid moving the trunk out of alignment.
hou to replace rear struts
If you're checking the rear struts there's nothing under the seat; there are 3 bolts under the headrests but everything else is under the car. And FYI- it's a nightmare getting the struts off the rear of this car. I had to take mine to a mechanic cause it basically involves unbolting the entire rear end to get the struts off the vehicle.
Yes because during braking your tire will loose contact with road which will affect our stopping distance. it will also cause waves on the tire and when you do replace your struts you will have a vibration while driving
How do you replace the front struts on jaguar x-type

whats tools do i need to replace my rear struts on my 95 camaro
need to know how to replace rear struts on 2004 kia optma
i have a 2004 altima and have received quotes for the 2 front struts. one quote is as high as 300 dollars per side..parts, labor, tire balance and front end alignment. this quote is based upon Nissan parts, or what a Nissan dealership would charge to do it. the mechanic said it would be less..but he wouldn't say how much more less. 2nd quote is 115 per side..that's all they said-with the exception that you should replace all 4 at the same time(rolling eyes) You do not have to replace all four struts at once, but you shouldn't just do one at time either. Replace them in pairs if you can't do all four. Struts are around $200 each. I would not recommend having a Nissan dealer replace them because the labor alone is going to cost way too much money; have a local certified mechanic do it instead.
You will need to compress the strut spring with a spring compressor. Be very careful as the spring will be under several hundred pounds of pressure. Remove the nuts on each and of the strut. Reverse the process to install the new strut.
how to replace rear struts on a 2002 saturn L 300
how do you remove the rear struts/shocks on 2002 hyundai sonata.
Prop the liftgate up securely with a 2x4 to get easy access to the struts....the liftgate is HEAVY and will hurt you if it falls closed while you're doing the replacement. The struts are held on top and bottom with small clips at the pivot point. Just pull the clips out, remove the old struts and reverse to replace. 15 minute job and easy to do.
It isn't hard at all aslong as you have patience and alittle know how. Be warned I highly suggest you take the struts once removed from the car to a service center to have them remove the strut from the springs!
you have to take bar off between the front suspension struts
It doesn't have struts. It has coil-over shocks.
