Front Strut Replacement for Nissan Versa Note 2014 (2nd generation 2012-present)
My girlfriend has a Nissan Versa Note 2014 (2nd generation 2012-present) and the front passenger strut is leaking fluid and the rubber dust boot is damaged (see photo). Iím planning on either doing it myself or taking it to a shop to have it done. I would be replacing both front struts for her and using the springs that are on there while replacing at least the damaged dust boot.
Does anyone know the procedure for doing it and have photos or video (Iíve looked here on the forum and on YouTube/Google but havenít found it for the 2nd Gen cars)? I ask because every tutorial Iíve seen for Versas are for the 2011 and earlier that have 3 bolts at the top of the strut (like nearly every other car), whereas the 2012-present only have 1 bolt at the top (see photo).
There isnít a lot of clearance at the top of the strut either so I was going to use a pass through socket and allen wrench to hold the strut shaft in place. If anyone has tips please feel free to share.
Thank you for any assistance!
