Now, where's Black Beauty and his repair CD when you need him
Right, here goes;
1: Raise car and place it on axle stands on both right and left hand side, this relieves the force on the anti roll bar links. (believe me, you dont want to do one side with the other side still on the ground)
2: Having removed the wheels, disconnect the ABS wiring and brake hoses from the strut assemblies. (keep en eye on those, killing an ABS sensor is not what you want)
3: Use the ball joint splitter and dismantle the hub from the upper arms, maybe you would like to remove the steering arm joints as well to gain better access.
4: Unscrew the antirollbar link joints from the forks and then the bolt connecting the forks to the struts (the thread on the link joints can be pretty rusty so you might have to cut them and buy new links)
5: Unscrew and remove the longitudinal bolt holding the fork to the lower suspension arms, knock the fork from the strut using a proper size mallet
6: Unscrew the two nuts connecting the strut assembly to the upper suspension arm alloy assembly (there are four of them, but it's the two closest to the engine. Sometimes the struts can seize in there so you might find it easier to remove all four bolts and take it apart on the work bench)
7: Remove the strut from the car.
I take it you know how to take a strut apart, considering your selection of tools
Assembly is the in the reverse order. A 4 wheel alignment shouldn’t be necessary unless the steering wheel is of centre all of a sudden
