Front strut replcement 2006 buick lacross


Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.

It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.

If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

    Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
    Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
    Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
    Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
    Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
    Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
    Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
    Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
    Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

    How do i remove and replace the front right strut on a 1993 concorde? i have everything exposed but i am not sure hoe to remove and replace it. please help


    Front struts can be relatively strait forward and easy or take the entire day depending on your luck and skill. If you want to do the job the easy way I would recommend purchasing the complete strut and spring assemble, service manual, torque wrench and use an impact wrench. If you do not have access to a compressor and impact wrench you may need a breaker bar. If you do not have one it will be a welcome addition to your tool box if you do your own work on your cars. If you did not purchase the complete strut and spring assembly you will need a spring compressor.
    To get started open the hood and look directly above the strut where it attaches to the fender well. If you do not see the four nuts to remove the top of the strut you need to remove the protective dust cover to gain access to them. Turn the steering wheel to enable easier access to the nuts and bolts at the bottom of the strut. Jack up the front and place jack stands under the frame if available. Remove the front wheel and use blocks or a jack stand to support the wheel assembly so it will not drop when the strut is removed. Remove the four top nuts of the strut located under the hood. Remove the lower nuts from the strut by using the impact wrench or breaker bar. Once all bolts have been removed, make sure you can remove the strut assembly without tangling with the brake lines, or you may have to remove the brake calipers. Remove the blocks under the wheel assembly while and slowly lower it to free the strut being careful not to damage the brake lines. If you do not have the complete strut assembly you will need to compress the spring and remove the strut nuts with an impact wrench. Remove the old strut if you did not purchase the complete assembly and reassemble the strut unit the same way. When reassembling, be sure to torque all nuts and bolts to their proper specifications. Do not use impact tools when reassembling. Replace the strut and place the lower bolts and nuts in first. Raise the wheel assembly until the four threaded rods are visible on the other side of fender well and use blocks to support the wheel assembly. Tighten the nuts on the top of the strut and torque all the nuts. Remove the wheel assembly blocks and replace the wheel. Lower the jack after removing the jack stands. Torque the wheel lug nuts and replace the dust cover on the top of the strut. You should be good to test drive.

    Help replacing the front struts on 89 VW Cab


    You'll need to remove the upper strut mount nut. Unbolt the 2 bolts from strut to the wheel hub. Remove the strut unit from the car. You'll need a coil spring compressor to compress the spring to unscrew the strut bushing, remove the strut mount and remove the spring from the strut, install the spring to the new strut and reassemble. You'll be better off to get the whole strut, instead of the replacement cartridge, it's often hard to remove the old one from the old housing. Don't forget to replace the strut mount and strut bushing.

    How to instll front struts on 1998 Ford Escort?


    You "do not" need a strut spring compressor to change the struts on a 1998 ford escort.

    Place the front of the car on jack stands, and remove the front tires.

    Disconnect and remove the 2 bolts (at the bottom of the strut) that attach the strut to the knuckle (you may need air impact to break them free).

    Remove the brake lines from the line retainer on the strut: If you open the brake lines you will need brake fluid, and need to bleed the brake system (to avoid opening the brake system, cut the line retainer from the old strut).

    Inside the hood remove the circular cap that covers the top retaining nut on the strut. Remove the top retaining nut, then remove the strut.

    Install new struts in reverse. To align the new strut to the knuckle, use a screwdriver to start the aligment, then insert the retaining bolts. If you cut the brake line retainers from the old struts, use plastic zip ties to attach the brake lines to the new struts.

    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.

    Changing front struts


    this is best done with a strut spring compressor if you don't have one, do not atempt this operation at home. the springs on the struts need to be compressed to allow the nut to be removed and the new strut be installed. if you still want to do this your self call an independent garage and see if they will compress the springs and change the struts for you. then you can remove and reassemble them at home. also some automotive part stores have machine shop to do this for you. again do not remove the nut on the strut without the spring being compressed properly this is very dangerous. ken!
