REPLACING TRUNK STRUTS

1997 Hyundai Accent

Interior problem
1997 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles

How do I remove the ball connectors from the old struts? The original ball connectors appear to be one molded piece without any retaining ring, etc. To release the ball from the connector. Do I have to saw the plastic holding piece to get to the ball? Thank you.

Hi Gerald242,

What ball connectors are you referring to?

If it is a ball joint, it cannot be dismantled.
