Re: Renault Scenic - Rear Suspension Knock,Shock Absorbers Commonly Snapping
I just finished replacing both rear shock absorbers on my Scenic 2002, yeah...
The tutorial with pictures in this thread is great, thanks!
Like some people above me already mentioned the top nut on my Scenic required 21mm 12 point socket(and not 22mm 12 points as mentioned in the tutorial).
I removed the wheel arch cover to get access to the top nut - but looking back I think I should have just made two cuts in the arch cover around the nut area and lift the cut part to get access to the nut - would have saved me some work.
Took me one hour for each side.
Also I know it is not professional but I don't have a torque wrench - so I tightened the nuts, hard, using the same extension length on the spanner as I used to open them. I'll buy a torque wrench soon and retorque the nuts.
Again thanks for the tutorial!
