Skill Level: Repair Technician
- With the vehicle cold-soaked and the ambient temperature at 23º F or below, drive the vehicle over a road with small bumps.
- If a pop or clunk (similar to a mallet hitting a solid metal piece) is heard from the front struts, park the vehicle inside the shop and wait about 30 minutes to warm it up, then continue with step 2.
- If no noise is heard, this bulletin does not apply. Continue with normal troubleshooting.
- After the suspension components have warmed up for 30 minutes, drive the vehicle on the same portion of the road where you heard the pop or clunk.
- If there is no noise from the front suspension, continue to REPAIR PROCEDURE.
- If the same noise is heard, this bulletin does not apply. Continue with normal troubleshooting.
- Raise and support the vehicle.
- Remove the front wheel.
- Remove the wire guide rubber and the clip from the damper. Do not disconnect the wheel speed sensor connector.
- Remove the brake hose bracket from the damper.
- Remove the flange nut while holding the joint pin with a hex wrench, and disconnect the stabilizer link from the damper.
- Remove the damper pinch bolts and flange nuts from the damper.
- Remove the cowl top wiper cover, then remove the flange nuts from the top of the damper. Do not let the damper/spring drop down under its own weight.
- Remove the damper/spring.
- Compress the damper spring, then remove the self-locking nut while holding the damper shaft with a hex wrench. Do not compress the damper spring more than necessary to remove the self-locking nut.
- Release the pressure from the strut spring compressor, then disassemble the damper.
- Install the new bump stop.
- Reassemble the damper using a new self-locking nut. Torque the nut to 70 N∙m (52 lb-ft).
- Reinstall the damper assembly onto the vehicle using the new flange nuts and pinch bolts. Torque the flange nuts to 69 N∙m (51 lb-ft) and the pinch bolts to 175 N∙m (129 lb-ft).
- Reconnect the stabilizer link to the damper. Torque the bolt to 79 N∙m (58 lb-ft).
