12.3.3. Removal and installation of the shock-absorber


1 — the Nut, 25 Nanometers which is self-stopped surely replace
2 — a shock-absorber Support
3 — the compression course Buffer
4 — the Protection cover
5 — the Shock-absorber, pay attention to distinction performed by a running gear


The special tool is necessary for removal of the shock-absorber. HUNDRED AUDIS use the device for compression of V.A.G.1752/1, V.A.G adapter to this purpose. 1752/9 and holder of a spring of V.A.G. 1752/16.


  1. Mark with an arrow on the tire the direction of rotation of a wheel. Weaken bolts of fastening of a wheel. Lift and establish a back part of the car on supports and remove a wheel.
  2. Remove a spring, address the Section Removal and installation of a screw spring.
  1. Turn off a nut (1) and take out a bolt (on an accompanying illustration the guard is not shown).
  1. Turn out a bolt (2).

The wheel casing is not removed.

  1. Take out the shock-absorber.
  1. At an otvorachivaniye and an inhaling of nuts of fastening of a support of the shock-absorber hold a rod from a provorachivaniye. HUNDRED AUDIS use for this purpose the special tool 3017A.



  1. Establish a support on the shock-absorber and fix it by the new self-stopped nut the moment of 25 Nanometers.
  1. Tighten bolts (2) the moment of 36 Nanometers. You monitor the provision of the lower fastening.
  2. At first tighten a nut of the lower fastening of the shock-absorber (1) the moment of 30 Nanometers.
  1. Establish into place a spring, address appropriate section.
  2. Observing the direction of rotation of a wheel, fix a back wheel, lower the car on wheels and only after that tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel the moment of 120 Nanometers.

The inhaling of a nut of the lower fastening of the shock-absorber needs to be made as follows:


  1. Lower the car on wheels.
  2. Weaken the lower fastening of the shock-absorber.
  3. Several times press through a car suspension bracket.
  4. Tighten a new nut (1) the moment of 150 Nanometers and then tighten on a corner 90 °.
