Replace rear strut on 1992 prelude-not enough clearance to remove

Repair manual says once bottom bolt and top bolts are out, remove strut, then use spring compreesor to disassemble. Removing strut is difficult because of clearance problem at bottom with knuckle/hub assembly. I had to use spring compressor while strut was still in the car to create clearance. Any suggestions?

He seow do i remove rear seat cushion in 2009 toyota camry


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 you had into the space 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.

I need a diagram of strut rod bushings for a 95 honda accord


sorry dont have a diagram here is a how to

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, properly disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), as detailed in Chassis Electrical .
  2. Elevate and safely support the front of the car.
  3. Remove the wheel.
  4. Loosen the nut at the rear of the radius rod. Remove the nut, washers, bushing, etc. Keep them in the correct order for reinstallation.
  5. Remove the bolts securing the rod to the control arm. Remove the rod.

To install:

  1. Inspect the bushings carefully for wear or deformation. Replace them if any damage is found.
  2. Fit the rod into place and install the bolts at the control arm. Tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) on Accords through 1989 and Preludes through 1991. On 1990-95 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the bolts to 76 ft. lbs. (105 Nm).
  3. Install the bushings, washers and spacers on the rod. Install a new locking nut. On all except 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the end nut to 33 ft. lbs. (44 Nm). On 1992-95 Preludes, tighten the nut to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).
  4. Install the wheels and lower the vehicle.
  5. Properly enable the SRS system, if equipped, and connect the negative battery cable.

1999 hyundai elantra how to replace rear struts


Rear struts usually have a large bolt on the bottom and 3 little bolts on top, to allow removal.
But then you need special spring compressor clamps to take the tension off the coil spring, so that the top of the strut can be safely removed. Careful, because the springs can be very dangerous.
You remove the top from the strut by undoing the large center nut. If the shaft turns with the nut, use a small wrench on the flats in the end of the shaft. Once the top is off, then you remove the spring. The strut tube then has a cap retaining the insert cartridge that needs to be removed and replaced with a new one. Reverse the rest.

Install shocks on a mazda miata


You will need a strut compressor if you have rear struts. You will need to remove the upper bolt inside hatch and one connected to axle. compress springs, and remove strut.
If this is regular shocks, lift car up by bumper, remove top and bottom bolts and replace.

Replace coil spring


You have to remove them - that "block" is the upper strut-to-body mounting section and serves as the upper seat for the spring as well as the anchor for the top of the strut. You need to take those four 17mm bolts out, as well as the rear upper sway bar bolt, the upper control arm bolt (at the top of the hub), and the bottom bolt on the strut, where it goes through the lower control arm. You'll then have to compress the spring enough to take the bolt out of the "block" (it goes through sideways, and I believe is 19mm on the bolt head as well as the nut). At this point, you can slide the spring/strut out of the block, decompress the spring, pull out the strut, and install a new spring over the strut. Recompress enough to get the top of the strut visible through the anchor bolt hole in the block, rebolt it, decompress the spring, and reinstall the assembly in the car. Usually when you go to reinstall it, the bottom of the strut is not angled quite right once the top four 17mm bolts are back in and the block is secured to the body. I put a large screwdriver through the lower strut bolt hole at the bottom of the strut and use that to turn it, or I grab the weld near the bottom of the strut with large ChanneLock pliers and turn it until it's aligned with the control arm properly. Once it is, put the lower bolt back in, rebolt the control arm and sway bar, and you're good to go.

Note - this job will not affect alignment specs - you don't remove any bolts used in aligning the car, so that's not a concern when doing this repair.

I want to replace the rear struts on my 2003 Toyota Corolla. Removing the large bottom bolt is easy but how do I access the top part of the strut??


You will have to remove the rear seat.Go to the bottom cusion in the front and yank it up,about a foot in from the outside on each side.Once it out there are some bolts on the bottom of the back rest cusion remove those and push it up and remove.Then you cen get to three nuts on each strut top.
