I have attached an exploded view of the rear strut assembly. However, I am concerned. Do you have the proper tools to replace the strut? Trying to remove a coil assembly from the unit can be dangerous if you don't have the right tools.

Let me know.

Yes, the rear seat needs removed. Additionally, you will need to separate the stabilizer link assembly, abs sensor, and rear brake flex hose (attached to the bottom of the strut assembly).

From that point, you will need to unbolt the assembly from the vehicle and remove it. PLEASE properly support the vehicle.

Place your hands near the hook, as shown in the illustration, and lift the seat cushion to detach the hook.

Let me know if you get it.

There are clips that hold it in place. Don't go crazy, but don't be afraid to pull on it to remove it.
