Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To replace these rear struts, you're probably going to want to have somebody help you hold this, because it's very, very heavy without these struts. You can do one at a time. You're simply going to just take small flat blade screwdriver. Push this up. Slide it up. It will pull off the lock. Keep that there so you don't lose it. Pull it right off the ball stud. Do the same for the other side, just like that. It will come right off.

To reinstall it, just push it back on. Push the lock in, just like that. Back up, you might have to move this up a little bit. Push that in place. Push the lock down. There you go. The strut is replaced. You can do the same for the other side.
