Donald Newton: Great video! What is your opinion on whole strut assemblies with spring pre-installed? I have 2006 Jetta TDI and would to replace the struts and shocks. What supply sources for after market VW parts do you like to use?
sheaffej: Very helpful. Thanks!
Eddie Galon: When compressed with clamps, I would suggest pointing the top of the strut away from your face. Failure of that compressor at that moment could be the end of your eating whole foods for along time ;). Nice vid though.
osky basile: You're a big ...., help you gave to this video had no idea how to disarm my cushions, very good and simple explanation. GENIOOO !!!!! desde Argentina
derek wininger: Cant i do it with out a spring compressor and just use the jack to compress it then loosen the nuton top slowly lower the jack till it decompress'? Thats how my uncles use to do it
Agent Office: Best
Charlie Quiroz: Buen tutorial.
Juan Sanchez: Very good
SickTwistedFrq: Is there anyway you can find a location where the lighting is consistent. The camera iris reacts to the bright and sometimes your subject is in the dark making it difficult to make out some of the finer points of your narrative. However, I appreciate the information and I will be viewing a few more times prior to my own VW strut swap. Thanks for referencing the compressor part number!
SwPiotrek: Great video.
I very like your camera moves!
dieselworld: Because I wanted to keep the factory springs and I know how to properly use a spring compressor and not scared of it.
Rebootrevival: Why don't you just buy a new strut shock coil set, bypassing any chance of the coil decompressing and reeking havoc.
Hein Krohne: Nice demo, thanks.
Y have to do my vw golf, hi.
colonelkad: Two thumbs up!Thanks!
andee ramone: i tried changing the shocks today on my 97 jetta gt.i bought new shocks and mount kits. i had a hard time b/c the new strut mounts did not come with the coil seat. every major auto retailer had to special order it. i ended up reusuing my old mounts.
this video as very helpful though.
rhkips: You just used an impact gun to fasten down both retaining nuts on a pair of brand new struts and bearings...
Welp, so much for the warranty, not to mention the brand new strut bearings.
vvtube1972: Very nice!
