Did this video help you?

bunkerbuster: oooooooor you can just pay a little more and get quick struts. so much easier and safe.

Ivan Vega: I am going to be doing this job on a 2001 GTI VR6. For some reason I always though that in order to remove the strut you have to remove the ball joints on the control arm to make enough room to remove strut. That's what I had to do for my 2008 GTI which made the experience painful :( Great vid!

Salman Almahal: very helpful video thank you 

Steve Decker: My vw has the same problem too as did your car, the whole strut assmbly moved because of a broken mount would this cause a noise from the front end and if so is this a problem that gets gradually worse after time

javier pinedo: nice job bro

Teh RedSpade: first time i done this, i didnt do it right and my thumb was almost cut off... so be careful people

Juan Sanchez: Very good

Teh RedSpade: ive done this a few times and hate doing it. i need to do my vw and i cant find my spring compressors, but because of that, its making me want to just take it somewhere. this is a scary job

Hein Krohne: Nice demo, thanks. Y have to do my vw golf, hi.

Tidus Stuart: Have to do other front side strut tomorrow then the rear shocks and I'm praying they are easier this model car is the GLS

jermbot3000: This video was very helpful and accurate enough for any DIY individual. I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to work on a MK3 VW Jetta strut assembly. - Miller's Garage

eurocaranyone: lol do not look over the spring while it is being compressed... oh kinda like the way you do in the video?

Agent Office: Best

DaJellyPhiisH: how big of a compressor do you have, im doing this possibly this week, i need an impact wrench, i dont know if i should get an electric one or an air one. dont need something super expensive though

trevor michelau: nice to see yer wearing gloves

Mario Campos: beautiful

cabitty: If you dont have a impact gun, you"ll have to use a spark plug socket and hex key along with a box wrench. Put the spark plug socket over the bolt, put the hex key in the shaft. Use vise grip to hold hey key while you use box wrench to turn the spark plug socket.

DriftKing41091: Im have trouble with my strut and wen i go to loosen the nut the silver strut shaft turns with the nut. The spring is compressed too

SwPiotrek: Great video. I very like your camera moves!

vclubamp: get an alignment? I didn't think they had adjustment for that, or maybe that's just on the newer jettas and beetles.

scotty1418: Thanks for the DIY - nice job. Was the strut really bad, or could you have just applied new upper mounts?

LOVEADAMLABERT3068: hi i have 96 jetta with 95k i just had the rear done to day and had new tires put on the guy at tire kingdom said i need front ones to but my front tires look good so why do i need them /

Charlie Quiroz: Buen tutorial.

kroert beiejf: nice vid

Rob ert: thats one rust free tdi wish my 2.0 was that clean!

DriftKing41091: @ 11:58 most importantly aim the spring from your body, your house and vehicles !!!!

christofer128: my friend i need help.The upper part which connects to the car frame and you get 1 bolt to screw from the engine side how much you should screw it?My shocks when im driving i here friction noises between that part and the shock.Did i leave to much space between shock and car frame??

Tidus Stuart: 2003 jetta could not get strut off without jumping on the rotor and had to use a prybar to get it on then would not seat . having hard time without a impact wrench with nuts on end top of strut. I'm thinking maybe I did not disconnect something for clearance. Had no problem with the springs following your safety instructions- thanks

colonelkad: Two thumbs up!Thanks!

mclovinvdubin: I like the Mercedes in the drive way both of them i have a 82 300d 5 speed euro Best car Ever what state are u in

followtheliters: Just replaced my girls 1999 Jetta struts with a set of new quick struts. The new ones went in nicely but my only concern is that there is still a gap if not bigger now between the strut tower and the mount. any suggestions or ides of whats causing this would be much appreciated!

n310ea: I'll be replacing the front struts on my '05 Mercury Grand Marquis. The front springs on my car are so thick that I might have to use 2 pairs of spring compressors for extra strength (screw clamps X4) and use 4 clamps on one spring offset at 90° from each other.

Rebootrevival: Why don't you just buy a new strut shock coil set, bypassing any chance of the coil decompressing and reeking havoc.

TheEnormoose: Thanks! One of the best DIY vids i've seen.

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!

CHILACAYOTE4: Very Well Explained! Tx's For The Instruccions On How To, I don't under stand why is 4 dislikes probly they want that you do it for them! lol!!!

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.

Teddy Eddy: an alignment... sun of a gun.... i just got one..... is it really necessary? because i just got an alignment as of 3 days ago...

Jacob Chievous: Hey keep them comming with vw bro* giggling... Question* you didn't use Tha special vw tool 13 mm socket .. hope I don't have fabricate one my own*

vclubamp: I guess by newer I mean post '99

dieselworld: Yes it was wore out.

Jacob Chievous: Never mind I got it done already*. I also replaced Tha cv axle driver side.. giggling is was not easy*

dieselworld: Because I wanted to keep the factory springs and I know how to properly use a spring compressor and not scared of it.

Fernando Martínez: This video was very useful to do the struts replacement for my 97 Jetta GLS, thanks dieselworld

geebeee04: very helpful gonna replace them on my jetta mk3 vr6

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!

Ronald Sanjana: I picked up the Bose CineMate 1SR soundbar in the US and now want to use it in India. I have been told that I need a "step-up converter" and that I should not connect this unit to the plug point in India. Can someone please let me know what I need to do? I am not sure what a "step-up converter" is and where I can get one. Thank you.
