5 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but only tighten the nuts and bolts to the specified torque with the car parked on level ground, with four passengers and 40 kg of luggage inside.
Suspension strut - later models 6 The suspension strut upper mounting nuts on later models also secure the brackets for the mounting of ancillary components such as the fuel filter, fuel system relays and fuses, etc. (depending on model).
7 When removing the suspension strut units, it will therefore be necessary to detach and support these brackets and their fittings (photo).
