Now disconnect the ABS sensor wire, there’s a plastic box on the chassis which is where it’s located.
You’ll need to take off the brake caliper because it’ll give more clearance when removing the shock from the hub.
The caliper pins use a hex head so you’ll need a size 7 socket.
Using a pry bar remove the metal brake retainer and push on the pry bar to back the piston back into the caliper so its easier to remove.
Hang the caliper, a bungee cord works wonders here.
Move up to the top side where there are three nuts that hold the strut in place.
One of the nuts is tough to get at so you it require an open ended wrench.
It’s time to remove the strut from the fender well by stepping on the brake disc and pushing down. It’ll go down just far enough to slide out but be careful to not nick the fender lip because it’s a tight fit.
Pry the hub open where the strut slides into the hub.
Start turning the strut back and forth and it will slowly start to come out. Note that there are two locating pins on the strut so the strut has minimal play when turning it back and forth.
