Ok so you will need to raise the car and remove the tire (you can do this one side at a time). Once that is done you will need to unplug the abs sensor or any other wiring that maybe in the way. Now you should find a pinch bolt remove that and the bolts that hold the upper support. Now you can pull the strut down you will now have to get the strut out ot the knuckle (pinch type). See pic included.
