    Hi you need coil spring compressor and sockets for the strut bolts - undo the strut from the top mount - use an allen key to stop it spinning when undoing the nut - make a note of the order things come off both on top of the wing und under the wing
    once the top is off undo the two bolts holding the strut to the hub carrier unclip the abs and brake pipes if attached
    bench the whole unit - count the coils and compare before stripping out - compress the spring and remove from the strut - uncompress - compress new one - fit to strut and tighten
    refit in reverse order
