You won't need a spring compressor or any thing like that but I do recomend a haynes repair manual for this job as a reference, the vehicle must be jack up and supported with a jackstand at the frame so the suspension hangs, remove the center nut located at the top of strut tower sometime the strut shaft just keeps turning this is the hardest part of the job removing that nut without it turning the strut shaft and if you try using visegrips to hold the shaft you will burr up the shaft causing the strut seals to fail, you may want to consider using impact air tool (if available) to remove the strut nut this is the most successful way to approach this job, after removing that nut remove the other 3 nuts holding the strut mount assemby, you should have the alignment checked after the job.

Location of shift solenoid


There are several shift solenoids on this. they are in the transmission. I believe they are on the side of your transmission. You can access them. But you ave to have the vehicle high enough to lower the engine sub frame, remove the strut bolts from the spindle and remove the engine/ transmission mounts front and back.

Hello. Welcome to FIxYa.

Your noise is most likely worn out 'rear strut support mounts'.

On top of the rear struts, there is a metal plate that locates the top of the strut to the body, Inside this plate is a centering device that holds the top of the strut vertically secure. As the mount wears, the strut is no longer vertically secure, and allow the tip if the strut to hit the inside edge of the metal plate.

We change these parts quite often, this is a very common occurance, and is easily rectified.

What you will need to do: Have a qualified technican remove the rear strut assemblies, disassemble them, and replace the top support mounts.

We do not recommend that you try this yourself, if you do not have the required experience, and the necessary tool (a strut coil-spring compresser). If you try to remove the coil spring from the strut assembly without the proper tools, you could very well injure yourself. The coil spring is under a significent amount of tension.

This is a job best left to a professional machanic who has the proper tools.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

It is very difficult to know from this description..
I would tell her to have it looked at right away..

The sound could be a broken strut or shock mount..
Or maybe the exaust system got knocked loose..

Hope this helps - rate well ;o)
