Default 855 Rear Suspension Top Mount Replacement

THIS HOW TO DO RELATES TO NON SELF LEVELING SUSPENSION (IE NON NIVOMAT) ONLY. TO CHECK YOUR APPLICATION CHECK YOUR SHOCKS IF THEY LOOK LIKE THIS

YOU HAVE NIVOMAT. THE CLUE BEING TO RUBBER BOOT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SHOCK

This is easy and basic thing to do, it took me 30 mins
If you are experiencing a banging or clunking coming from the rear suspension odds on it is the suspension top mount bush that has collapsed. it needent be a mechanic job as with a little time and patience it can be self done
Step 1 Purchase 2 new top mount bushes. Like Brake pads always replace in pairs. Cost from Eurocarparts.co.uk was 13.00 each plus 5.00 for 2 hour delivery. Pfv online are a pound cheaper but del is up to four days
Step 2 Tools requires 10 mil socket to remove boot seats
12 mil socket to remove mounting to car bolts
15 mil socket to remove shock centre nut
15 mil spanner
Mole Wrench to hold shock thread when undoing centre nut
Torque Wrench
wd 40 or eqivalent
copper slip

Step 3 Fold down back seats for ease of refitting boot seats and remove boot seats, both top mounts will be clearly visable

The N/S one is clearly shot :slap:

Step 4 Using a 12 mil socket remove the mounting bolts and a 15 mil spanner and mole grips remove the centre nut

old and new

Step 5 Replace with new mounting adding little wd40 to the hole and some copper slip to the nut. This will assist the tightening of the bolt and protect against rust to the underside of the bolt. Tighten using torque wrench 12 mil to 30nm and 15mil to 40nm
Step 6 Repeat steps on other top mount

Step 6 Replace rear seats and side covers
Step 7 Job done :B_blite:
