REMOVAL

NOTES:

  • Some variation in the illustrations may occur, but the essential information is always correct.
  • Some components shown removed for clarity.
  • Removal steps in this procedure may contain installation details.
  • Dampers fitted with electromagnetic damping, when stored in one position for an extended period, can exhibit a characteristic where the electromagnetic damping fluid separates out into its constituent materials. This can give a false impression that the damper piston rod is seized. This is normal. Therefore, when fitting replacement electromagnetic damping dampers it is important that prior to installing the dampers, they are inverted and compressed against a suitable piece of wood by pushing downwards using body weight only. Carry out this procedure 15 times. This makes sure that the fluid is fully mixed and operating as normal. It is important that the threads on the piston rod are protected at all times.

WARNING:

Do not work on or under a vehicle supported only by a jack.

Always support the vehicle on safety stands.

Raise and support the vehicle.

Refer to: Wheel and Tire (204-04 Wheels and Tires, Removal and Installation).
