How do I replace rear strut and spring


Replace it as a unit. Strut, spring, strut mount all in one. It's called a quick strut. Raise car by the body not the wheel. Remove brake line (1 bolt) from strut lower. Remove 2 large bolts holding lower strut end. In the trunk 3 smaller bolts hold the strut mount (upper end) in place. DO NOT remove the single large nut at the top of the strut assembly. Wiggle the strut assembly out. Slide the new strut assembly in bolt it back in. Put wheel back on. Done.

Remove rear seat


I have an 87 4dr Sentra w/o folding back seats. I need to get to the upper strut bolts and they are NOT accessible from trunk. All above wrong. I have pulled up on front edge of seat with full leg and pry bar and nothing moved. I pushed back and up on seat but no luck. I pulled away carpet and there are no screws. Chilton manual says there are bolts on front but they don't exist. I looked under car and in trunk but no luck.

Also, please remove blueextc322 answer because it's for an ENGINE COMPARTMENT problem, not seats.

How do I access the top of my rear strut on 2009 Camry Hybrid


I just replaced my rear struts on my 2009 Camry Hybrid. This was the second time in my life I ever did this kind of work. The trick is to get access to the top of the strut. You have to fold down the back seat cushions. In my hybrid there are two pull levers in the trunk that release the seats. The levers are at the top of the trunk.

Once you fold down the seats, there will be two side cushions on the side of the seats that did not fold down. At the bottom of that side cushion, between the side cushion and the bottom seat is a bolt holding the side cushion on. It is way in the back so you will need an extension with a 12mm socket to get to the bolt. Dont be afraid to dig into the space between the cushions to find the bolt. Once you unscrew the bolt, you can lift up on the side cushion and it will come out (lift upward). You now have a clear (and easy) access to the top of the strut. 11_8_2012_9_53_03_pm.jpg11_8_2012_9_53_44_pm.jpg11_8_2012_9_54_13_pm.jpg

I am replacing the rear struts on my 2006 ford taurus & I am wondering where or how is the best way to access the top strut mount assembly through the trunk or the rear seat of the ...


Push seat bottom rearward while lifting up. Fold seat back down and remove 13mm bolts. Remove push pins on rear speaker panel and lift out of the way. You have to be concern mostly of the bolts on the bottom of the struts, they tend to get rusted and might break off if you are not careful. Also remove the bottom stabilizer link bolts instead of trying to reach the top ones. These cars seem to be rust buckets, so use patience and heat if needed.

On a 1989 nissan maxima with sonar suspension II how do you disassemble the strut assembly? the mounting bracket for sonar adapters is in the way of the strut center bolt.


First you must remove the rear seat to gain access to the top strut mounts. The bottom of the rear seat comes out first. On the 91 model there are two tabs at the base of the seat bottm that you pull forward to release the seat bottom. I'm not sure if the 89 is the same. After removal of the rear seat bottom, you will see a bolt at the bottom of each side of the rear seat back that need to be removed. Fold down the arm rest and disconnect the vinyl cover at the base of the armrest to expose and remove two screws. Push up on the rear seat back to unhook three plastic hooks (center and one at each end) at the top of the rear seat back. Remove the seat back. Remove the large metal support panel that is behind the seat back. Safely jack up the rear of the car and support on jack stands so the rear wheels hang free. Doing one strut at a time, remove the two top strut mount bolts leaving the center strut stud nut in place. The strut and mount will lower out of the unibody. Disconnect the bottom strut mount. Remove the strut/coil spring assembly. Using a strut/spring compressor (some auto parts stores rent these) compress the spring. Carefully remove the top strut stud retaining nut, top strut mount, bumpers and strut boot. Carefully install compressed spring, strut boot, bumpers and top strut mount on new strut and install washer and retaining nut. Reinstall strut and etc. in reverse order.

I need to replace the rear struts and spings on my 01 sable, Where are the top nuts to loosen for the struts


The bolts are located under the rear deck (where the rear speakers are located) inside the car. First start by opening the fold down rear seats. There you will find 4 bolts holding the rear seat back. Remove them. Pull the seat back forward and lay it down on the rear seat. Next remove the rear deck. There are 2 plastic push-in clips that hold the rear deck. They located toward the front. Pull them out. Now the rear deck can be removed by sliding forward towards the front of the car. Under the rear deck is insulation which can be lifted out. Under the insulation are the bolts for each strut. Remove these bolts and the strut can be pulled out.
