    A nice package arrived...

    Came home to these after work, 50mm H&R springs, now if someone could help me with 2 things...

    1) how do I remove the plastic thing above the front struts for them to be removed

    2) the rear axel seems like it's a 2 parter and my old fabia when replacing the springs only had 1 straight across axel, will there be a difference or is it just raise the car, remove bolts from the bottom of shocks then replace springs?

    Thanks in advance for any helpImageUploadedByTapatalk1376942318.038432.jpg

    On mine when I did the front coilovers, I just prized the plastic up enough to get the socket in without fully removing the plastic papanel and on the rear I just jacked the car up and unbolted the swing arm bolt with the help of a second jack. I found that to be the easiest way to get the rear springs out. No spring clamp needed on the back.

    I agree with that, drivers side was a nightmare compared to passenger side. And plenty swearing lol
