To install:

    NOTE

    Be aware of the direction of the damper mounting base so that the small hole dot on it is toward the front inside of the vehicle,

  2. Loosely install the flange nuts on the top of the damper.
  3. Loosely install the flange bolt on the bottom of the damper.
  4. Raise the suspension with a floor jack to load it with the vehicles weight before tightening the nuts and bolt.

How to replace gas lift for back gate


depends on what model you are asking about . some of the rear lifte gate struts are bolted on . just remove the bolts while supporting the real glass or lift gate .And some struts use a little push clip at each end of the strut . these you can use a pick or a small flat blade screw driver to pop out of place . the new struts should have them already installed on them . so they just snap back on . just remeber to support the gate while changing the struts

I have a 96 maxima i got the struts changed and now the abs light is on what now?


i would return the car to the shop that changed the struts. either a sensor got left unplugged, or possibly a cable got damaged in the job. either way, best place to start is by going back to where the struts were changed. they can scan for codes and go from there. good luck!

Changing rear struts on a 1999 mercury sable


First off you must remove the back seat to gain access to the three mounting nuts of the upper strut mount. Then you can remove the nut and bolt that pinches the the rear spindle assembly to the lower strut. separate the two and pull the strut assembly out of the car.

How do i change rear struts on 2004 camary?


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.

one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts

two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

2004 Camry rear support part numbers:

Left: 48750-33062
Right: 48760-33062

I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.

Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!

Change rear gas struts on 98 Buick Lasabre


No, it isn't...
You need:
-20" breaker bar
-torque wrench
-Liquid wrench (or WD-40 if you don't have any)
-Jack and stands
-sockets to fit all of the connections

1. Remove the back seat:
Bottom cushion comes out by pushing it rearwards and lifting, undo the 2 seatbelt bolts and 2 push nuts and remove the back cushion

2. Jack and support the frame of the car
3. Remove the wheels
4. Place a jack under the control arm where the spring connects to it and put a little tension on the spring. (this is so that when you unbolt the strut the control arm won't come crashing down)
5. Remove the air tube by rotating the spring clip 90 degrees and pulling on the tube at the connector.
5. Remove the lower strut bolts. (Exprerience shows me that removing the lower one first will save you lots of agony...)
6. Remove the two strut mounting bolts that are behind the back seat cushion.
7. Compress the strut and remove from the vehicle.
8. Installation is opposite of the removal. Remember to use a new mount if the one you are removing is worn. I recommend Quick-strut 171798. Good Luck!

P.S. Torque Specs are:
Lower Strut bolts- 140 ft/lbs
Upper strut bolts- 30 ft/lbs
Mount to strut bolt - 70ft/lbs
