Changing struts on1993mercedes benz500
I want to know how to change the struts...i
see it has some type of fluid line coming
out of them...what is it and how can i
change my struts
It's called oil or hydraulic fluid. You need a nice level surface, jack stands and all the necessary tools to perform the job. Previous experience working on cars is a must. Struts should be done in pairs. Research online at the MB forums or purchase a service manual.
Will bleeding be necessary. And will used struts be able to be replacement struts?
I personally would not installed used struts, you don't know how old they are and since your going in to replace and they fail all that work would be for nothing.
Good point thank u very much tom
Silly question but why do you want to change your struts. The hydraulic fluid lines are all part of a self levelling system. This system is controlled by a pressure sensing valve located on the underside of the vehicle close to the rear differential. If you have levelling issues you could be suffering with a seized valve lever or broken connecting rod.
they do go bad.pop the deck lid remove left and right liner to access r&l screws on strut..un screw the hose con be care full under high Prussia.
