    Itís not just a wrong set of springs. What about your time & a double job hire of equipment x 2 time off work & now you have to do it all again. Talk to the manager & say this is not on, travel to & from the place. Replacement springs plus what else do you need, think of something a set of bulbs minimum type of thing for the hassle. It would be good if there were a queue behind you, just think whatís going through their mind. In fact draw their attention to it, I would. He may suggest they do it for you. Thatís fine but you need the use of a car to get to work. Good Luck

    How do you disconnect the clip that holds the flexi hose for the brakes from the strut?
    I was going to change the mount that sits at the top of the spring but couldn't get the clip off the strut. I didn't want to force it so i put everything back together and booked the car into a garage to gaet the work done.
