How Do I Replace The Nearside Rear Shock Absorber On My W Reg Fiesta?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

My W reg fiesta recently failed it's MOT for a fluid leak in the nearside rear shock absorber.

Could someone please explain to me or point me in the right direction of some instructions or a video to follow on how to change it.

Jack the car up and put it on stands. Jack touching the rear beam after but not lifting it. Undo the bottom bolts then the top bolts and then lower the beam slightly to remove them. Same process for rear springs they just fall out when you lower the beam too much.
