2.Remove nut from bolt attaching strut assembly to knuckle. Use soft faced hammer to tap serrated bolts from knuckle. Lower vehicle. Open trunk to access upper strut mount. Remove carpet from top of strut tower (if required). Remove rubber dust shield from top of strut tower.

3.Support strut assembly before removing upper strut mount-to-strut tower retaining nuts. Remove upper strut mount-to-strut tower retaining nuts. Remove strut assembly from knuckle, and remove from vehicle.
