    Good morning Steve,

    May I ask, is it a 164 Sport or do you need a Koni Sport (Yellow) rear strut?

    Thanks,

    Marc

    Did you have the specs on the body work? I have a 164 with some minor front-end damage from a 5 mph "fender bender" in an ice storm. The front crossmember/bumper in front of the radiator is pushed back far enough that there is no space between the bumper and the radiator (or very little space) and the passenger's side headlight frame is bent to point upward. I'm going to get it all straightened out but I need some measurements to send with it to the body shop.

    I use C-clamp and curved vise grips or water pumps to compress and rotate rear piston.

    Also spray under rubber boot in outer piston groove so boot does not twist.

    Steve - doing research indicates the need for a "rewind tool" for the rear calipers use for EMR brake in order to replace pads?!? Guidance on how to finesse this one?

    Will get under the car this week. Will advise. THX Ive decided to change out all pads at the same time. Need to research winding back the pistons in these calipers. CIAO

    Steve - guidance please. Upon flush discovered that no fluid flow thru right rear... SO how to sort plug? Thought is to remove the bleed nipple to see if theres overflow around nipple threads indicating clogged nipple...otherwise its a clogged line and much more time to sort...
