Hi.on each end of the gas strut it has steel clips which you have to remove with a flat screw driver and then pull the strut off, then just push the new ones on

How do I replace my front left strut assembly on my 2002 Ford Escape? I have the replacement strut assembly I just need to know how to remove the old and install the new. Thanks


theres not really much anyone can tell you except for remove the top 3 nuts under the hood, and there is either either 1 or 2 bolts that hold it to the knuckle. take the bolts out of the knuckle before the nuts under the hood. you have to beat the knuckle off the strut THEN remove the 3 bolts under the hood and thats about it... may be a brake line attatched also but just a bolt holding it there. this is only if you have a ready made strut and spring assembly. installing springs is a whole different thing...

How to cange front shocks.?


Raise and support the car safely and remove the front wheels. Undo the clip holding the brake line to the strut. Loosen the bolts holding the strut to the steering knuckle. Before removing them, remove the strut mount tower bolts under the hood. Then remove the other bolts, the entire strut assembly will slide out. You can either install a complete new strut and spring assembly (more expensive), or you can use a coil spring compressor to remove the spring from the old strut and install it on a new strut (less expensive but a lot more work, and you must have access to a spring compressor). Make sure when installing the spring that it is aligned correctly on the new strut. Also, you should replace the strut mounts with new ones. Be aware that a compressed spring is very dangerous, so be sure to follow the instructions for the spring compressor. Re-install the strut assembly. Make sure that the knuckle bolts and strut mount bolts are torqued to spec.

How do replace the Hood Strut 1996 Ford Taurus


First, buy 2 new struts. Have someone hold the hood up (so it dosn't fall on your head) Doing one side at a time, using a sharp pick, push it under the strut retaining clip, lifting the clip away from the strut ball.(watch your eyes when doing this). You might have to move the hood up to release it from the socket.Do the same for for both ends> Install the new one by pushing it on,moving the hood up or down alittle to snap it back on the ball socket.

Replace front strut


You will need a strut spring compressor. You can probably buy a cheap one for about as much as a shop would charge you to install a new spring on your strut.

Sometimes you can even "borrow" these from your local parts store with a deposit.

It is probably faster to do it yourself than bring it to a shop.

You need to compress the spring before you put it in the strut housing. Directions should be included with the spring compressor kit.

Here's the general directions:

Take the two bolts on the bottom off

There may be a bolt holding the brake line in place (remove it)

Take the three bolts on the top off

The strut assembly should be free now.

Pull strut assembly out and set it on the floor

The top nut holds the top bearing plate and that holds the spring in place.

Remove the top nut

Remove old broken spring

Compress new spring and put it in place on the strut

Put strut top plate on and secure locknut

Release spring compressor.

Reinstall strut assembly in car.


Good Luck!

Front struts replacement


Jack up and secure front end of your vehicle,Take off two front wheels. Loosen to bolt on the bottom of struts (Its a bolt and nut). Remove clip that holds brake hose on to strut and remove hose. DO NOT OPEN BRAKE LINE OR DISCONNECT FROM CALIPER. Remove bolts and remove bottom of strut from knuckle/Hub assembly. Then loosen nuts on strut tower( on top of fender inside hood) (3) nuts, mark exact locations of each nut on strut mount area on upper fender weld. Make sure to hold strut on the bottom so it doesn't drop down on caliper and knuckle or on you possibly.YOU WILL NEED A SPRING COMPRESSOR to compress spring so you can take struts off. MAKE SURE THAT SPRING IN COMPRESSED/SQUEEZED WITH A STRUT COMPRESSOR. Then loose center nut on strut tower(may be covered with a circular rubber cover) If nut spin around with out getting loose use vise grips to hold strut rod ONLY TO REMOVE STRUT NOT TO INSTALL. if you use vise grips to install it will damage strut. When nut is off, remove strut and reinstall new one transfer all rubber boots and cushions from old strut. Good Luck thanks for using FIX-YA.com contact me if you need more help.
