SOURCE: Need to fit coil springs to Landcruiser 79 series ute (2004)

You need a coil spring compresser, and the proper skill level to use it.
If you try to change the coils without a compresser, you CAN & WILL GET HURT. Coil springs are not something to fool about with if you do not have the proper tools. These things are danagerous.

SOURCE: coil spring

If your car has over 75K miles on and the struts are original, I'd have the struts replaced. As for the coil spring, you can probably find a repair manual at your local library. You can get loaner spring and strut compressor tools at most auto parts stores (loaners are free, just have to leave a deposit for the price of the tool).

Repair cost will vary from place to place, but I'd say coil and strut replacement is about 4-5 hours labor. I'd guess a $300-$450 for parts and labor (coil - $100, pair struts - $140)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: broken front coil springs

can't seem to locate any recalls for that issue. the replacement springs may not be up to the specifications that are called for. some of the cheap aftermarket replacements use to hard a steel (brittle) check that the correct spring is being installed.

My Peugeot Partner has a 1.9 diesel engine. The serpentine belt recently burst so I purchased a replacement but I would like some guide on exactly how the belt should be placed around the pulleys.


If this belt broke then remove the timing covers and check for bit of belt inside around the timing belt before you go any further .its quite easy to refit a new fan belt but they can vary with the year as earlier ones had a manual adjuster but later models are spring loaded so check the timning belt belt first then if ok answer this post and i will scan my alldata book for you as its late and iam going to bed before i fall asleep over the keyboardss

I have a 2002 buick lesabre limited and my car is leaning on the passanger side is that the struts?


The vehicle is supported by coil springs. On the front the coil is part of the strut assembly. If you jack up the side of the vehicle that is low (jack under the subframe or by the pinch weld) you sould be able to see if the spring is broken or not.

If it is there is a solution called a "quick Strut" this will be a complete strut assembly that is completely assembled. All you will need to do is remove the old one, install the new one, and have the vehicle aligned.

It is recommended to do these in pairs (both fronts or both rears or all four at the same time, the rears are usually shocks or air shocks).
the other alternative is to replace the spring. the strut will need to be installed into a spring compressor in order to replace the coil. It will still need to be removed from the vehicle and brought to a machine shop or service facility to have the spring replaced. It is a good idea to replace both springs and struts at this time. You will find with a little price shopping that it is not that much more to go with quick struts.

I have a citroen saxo 1.5 diesel,x reg,2000.when the vehicle is stationary at a junction,or parked before moving,if i move the steering wheel there is a loud clunk coming from the spring/tyre area at hte...


Firstly, be aware that springs can kill you. They have tons of force, enough to support your car, and if released can seriously damage or kill you.

So, being careful. Look for spring alignment. If the spring were to be rotated and thereby not correctly seated, it gets unevenly loaded and shifts form time to time. This shift can make quite a loud noise.

You may need to get a helper to turn the wheel while you observe from under the front end...

Front right coil spring has slipped below spring perch, need to correct. I need to take apart, looking for a detailed diagram, and reassemble. Can this information be obtained?


This usually happens when the spring has broken. You'll have to remove the upper 3 nuts that hold the strut mount to the body, and the bolt that goes through the lower control arm that mounts the strut, also the sway bar end link, then remove the spring and strut as an assembly. You'll need a spring compressor to safely remove and install the new spring. It is always recommended that you replace the front springs as a pair (both side). This job may be better left to a pro unless you have some experience, also you may be able to buy a product called "quickstruts" They are sold as a spring and strut completed assembly so you won't require a spring compressor.

Hope this helps,
Dave

Was there a recall on 2002 mercury sable front coil springs before,my tire went flat and i was gona change it then noticed that it wasnt a small puncture but that the coil spring broke off and punctured it...


No recall
Your front suspension is a McPherson struts assembly type.
Maybe I do not have the right english wording to satisfy the purists but roughly the complete strut assembly unit at the bottom is attached to the knuckle by two strong bolts and at the top to the vehicule frame by 3 nuts on studs. The coil spring you're talking about is mounted and compressed between the strut assembly base support bracket/seat and the top plate of the assembly. By the way, the built in shock absorber is the component you see going from the bottom to the top trough your coil spring. To remove the coil spring or replace the strut itself you have to compress the coil spring using a coil spring compressor tool. It a relatively dangerous process for beginners because the coil spring is under important tension.
If you plan to keep your vehicule several years have your coil springs replaced by new one. In this case I would suggest to change both for an even behaviour of your vehicule. The main reason they broke is their aging but mostly due to bad shock absorbers (struts) so by the same time have new struts installed. For coil springs, struts parts and labour it could cost you $1,000 and more to have it replaced (both sides) depending on where you have your mecanic done.

If you don't plan to keep your vehicule on a long term, I suggest to get a complete used struts assembly for this side (includes struts and coil spring) at a scrap yard for $125 and less and have it installed for approx. 1 hour and less of labour time. It could be a cheap solution.

Do not have new tire installed before you fix it otherwise you will scrap the internal structure of you tire.

Hope it will help

Front spring


Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Remove the tire/wheel assembly.
Remove any brackets or sway bar endlinks that may be attached to the strut.
Remove upper strut mount bolts (NOT THE BIG ONE IN THE CENTER) Should be three bolts.
Remove two strut to knuckle bolts and remove the strut.
Using an external spring compressor tool compress the spring. FOLLOW THE TOOL MANUFACTURES INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. COIL SPRINGS HOLD A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF POTENTIAL ENERGY AND CAN CAUSE VERY SERIOUS INJURY AND/OR DAMAGE IF THE TOOL IS USED INCORRECTLY.
Remove the top nut of the strut.
Remove the spring noting how the strut mount and other parts are oriented.
Remove the spring compressor.
Compress the new spring and install the new spring with the strut mount and other parts in the same orientation as it was removed.
Reinstall the top nut.
The rest is opposite of removal.
