DISASSEMBLY SERVICE POINTS
 
 
<<A>> SELF-LOCKING NUT REMOVAL
 
1.
cautionThe locking nut for the piston rod inside the shock absorber may be loose. Do not use an impact wrench to loosen the self-locking nut.
Install special tool spring compressor (MB991796) to special tool attachment B (MB991793) as shown in the figure.
 
2. Set the shock absorber assembly to the following special tools:
  • Spring compressor (MB991793)
  • Attachment B (MB991796)
  • Upper plate (MB991794)
  • Fixture (MB991830)
noteUse the bolts and nuts removed from the vehicle to secure the shock absorber assembly and tighten them lightly by hand.
3. After setting the shock absorber assembly, operate the spring compressor and compress the coil spring by approximately 5 mm.
 
4. While holding the piston rod as shown in the figure, remove the self-locking nut.
 

 
 
<<B>> SHOCK ABSORBER DISPOSAL PROCEDURES
cautionWear the protective glasses. Although the gas is harmless, drilling chips may be blown out by the gas.
 
Before disposal of the shock absorber, place the shock absorber on the level surface with the piston rod extended, and make a hole of approximately 3 mm in diameter at the point shown in the figure to discharge the gas.
 
 
 
 
REASSEMBLY SERVICE POINTS
 
 
>>A<< COIL SPRING INSTALLATION
 
1. Align the end of the coil spring with the shock absorber as shown in the figure.
 
2. Set the shock absorber assembly to the following special tools:
  • Spring compressor (MB991793)
  • Attachment B (MB991796)
  • Upper plate (MB991794)
  • Fixture (MB991830)
noteUse the bolts and nuts removed from the vehicle to secure the shock absorber assembly and tighten them lightly by hand.
 

 
 
>>B<< SELF-LOCKING NUT INSTALLATION
cautionThe locking nut for the piston rod inside the shock absorber may be loose. Do not use an impact wrench to tighten the self-locking nut.
 
Counter the piston rod of the shock absorber as shown in the figure, and tighten the self-locking nut to the specified torque.
Tightening torque: 25 ± 5 N·m
