I need help replacing rear struts on a 2004 dodge stratus sedan


jack up the car and take off the wheel. go through the trunk and remove the trunk liner from the wheel well area. remove the two nuts off either of the center, dont remove the center one yet. now you remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut and remove the strut assy. you can buy new struts as a complete assy. or you will have to use a spring compressor and compress the spring until it is loose from the spring pad, then remove the nut from the top of the strut and it comes apart. a lot of times the rear mount goes bad on these cars and it makes noise on the bumps. it doesnt mean the strut is bad. you can check the strut by pushing the rod in and pulling it out, there should be steady resistance. any easy spots and the strut is no good. gas struts should fully extend by themselves from the gas pressure, if they dont, they are bad.

Change boot strut on nissan primera


There are steel clips on either end of the struts use a flat head screwdriver to remove them and the strut should pop out with a little persuasion. Make sure to hold boot lid in case it falls on fingers.

Trunk struts need adjusting 2007 Sonata


Not if they are gas charged struts, but could be replaced. Take both struts off at one end and see if that was the problem with difficulty raising the trunk lid.

91 subaru pneumatic air suspension not working


The front struts from either sedan or wagon are interchangeable so either will work, back struts have to be from the same type (wagon or sedan) as top suspension mount plates are different. Just pull the air suspension out and replace with standard struts. There are plenty of people dismantling them so parts are easy to get and quite cheap.
It's easy to swap, just remove each strut and bolt in the standard one, Remove the switch from the dash and get a blanking plate from a dismantled vehicle and fit it into the hole.

HI, I have got the new Azera trunk lift support cylinders. I do not know how to replace the old lifts with new ones. please send the steps if anyone know how to do this.


These gas filled struts have a "U" shaped clip on both ends of the strut. Using a small flat tip screwdriver, pop these clips outward (not all the way out). Lifting the trunk lid slightly will allow you to remove these struts and install the new ones.

Replacing boot struts


Hi GB52. Just done this myself, should take 15 minutes perside max. 1/ remove rear seat cushion by bumping the centre back and up, lower the back rests down. 2/ Unscrew the striker plate from the seat side bolster and the bolt at the lower edge of the bolster Removing the bolster takes a bit of fiddling. 3/ use a flat-head screwdriver to release the strut spring clips - use the new ones as a guide. 4/ remove the old strut and fit the new one. reinstall the bolster, bolt and strike plate. note; when replacing the rear seat cushion, ensure the seat belts are fed through first and check that the seat retaining clips properly engage the floor panel brackets.

Hope this helps,

Davo
