Im guessing they are the same as the mk6 fiesta, done one of these ages ago and IIRC there is a mount inside the wheels are with 2 bolts

cheers stef

two 10mm bolts at top bracket and a 10 mm retaining nut on piston.a 15mm through bolt on the bottom . very easy to do. inner arch comes off easy. only thing was. when i tried to undo the through bolt 18mm nut it took me a good 20 mins of huffing and puffing using an extention bar before i realised that the 18mm nut is actually welded to the bottom bracket and you loosen it from the 15mm end Posted Image .what a twit i am
