    I'm having a freaking nightmare with my car at the moment. everything is falling apart all at once!

    Anyway I have a hydraulic fluid peeing out fluid like a man with a bad prostate problem so the roof doesn't work. I have a replacement part on the way but I wondered if there is anything I should know before trying to remove and replace the old one?
    The strut itself is easy to remove but It looks like the hydraulic pipes are clipped on at the ends and I don't want to break anything. Anyone got any tips?

    Cheers

    In case anyone else is doing this I'll update
    It's a breeze. The hydraulic pipes are held in with small metal clips that simply pull out (don't drop them into the wheel arch) The most difficult bit was swapping the retaining clip for the ball joint as the replacement part had one that was a little worn and wouldn't hold the ball joint on properly.
