this is easy OP. other members should be ashamed for their negative responses.

 

jack up the car and support on stands.

 

take off your wheels.

 

open the hood.

 

detach front swaybar end links.

 

unbolt the lower front strut assembly from the knuckle.

 

unbolt the three nuts holding the assembly into the tower in the engine bay.

 

take the strut out.

 

look straight at the big nut holding the tophat onto the strut shaft.

 

get it really close to your face when you're doing this so you can be extra sure you aren't stripping the threads and start turning this nut counter-clockwise to remove it. make sure you don't move your face/head out of the way when it comes off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

if you survive, sell your car to pay for your medical bills.

there are no walk through's because you shouldn't even be driving if you can't use what apparently little brain power you have to work out how to remove it.

You deserve every bit of fail the x-chassis will throw at you

MX83boobie just graduated from skate boards.

Can't figure out how to wipe his own ass, and can't read how to do it,

just like he couldn't read the rules of this forum.

 

Hey boobie, time to go home, your mommie is calling.

You brought the word 'honda' here, no one else (that survived) did.

And your the one who didn't read the fucking rules, and post an intro.

 

Oh, and anything related to 240SX will bring hate to.........

 

So stop being a retard, and do a fucking intro.

Where was the common sense from OP? Just follow the strut to where it stops and has bolts and unbolt.
