    Default Removing rear struts

    Hi,
    I'm having great difficulty removing the rear struts.
    The top torx screw is really easy, but the bottom one, I just can't get enough leverage because of the crampt space. It's on really tight too.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?


    I've got the car in pieces right now, so fast suggestions welcome...

    Just keep lashing it with WD40, then try a good extension bar, OK, you won't get much movement, but it might be enough to crack it off.

    You will need a long breaker bar to get the bottom one off. Only way to get enough weight behind it
