Question about Cars & Trucks
You have to find the 3 top bolts in the trunk were they bolt to the body of the car.
Loosen them from the spindle at the bottom of the strut.
take them out. (beware brake lines and ABS Wires)
If the replacements do not come with spings you will need spring compressors to compress the springs to relivevel the tension from the strut.
Carefully remove the top nut from the mounting plate and remove the plate / spring / and spring seat if it has one, reverse to install on the new strut.
WARNING if you do not properly and safley compress the spring it might release with hundreds of pounds of force, this can kill you as well as destroy anything in its path.

Release the fuel pressure by loosening the gas cap, raise and support the car on jack stands,squeeze the plastic tabs on the male end of the connector,and pull the connector apart.Some models have 2 tabs,and others have 1 and the fuel line screwed into the other side.Remove filter mounting bolt,unhook tab from frame and remove filter. when you put in the new filter, make sure the arrow is pointing toward front of engine.On the line with plastic tabs, just push on till you hear a click, then pull on it to make sure it's latched.Don't forget to tighten gas cap.

SOURCE: need to replace rear struts
It depends on who does it. If you are doing it by yourself, I would allow at least a couple of hours on each side, although it should take no more than one per side. If you have air tools and a lift, it should take between an hour or two from start to finish, since removing wheels, bolts etc would be fast. Hope this helps you, Rick

i do believe you have to take the passengers side dash apart behind the glove compartment. go to autozone and get a manual or go to the library and check the chiltons manual. this is not an easy job. how bad is the leak? if its not bad these heater cores are made of all aluminum. i would buy a bottle of that radiator additive and see if that takes care of the problem first. it only cost about 5 bucks a bottle and it may permanantly fix your problem.
