Having spent an age changing front disc pads, pins and pads stuck with nasty alloy corrosion, I noticed one of the front springs is broken, sigh.

Does any one know the correct way to replace this spring? It looks as though the whole front suspension unit needs to come off, strut top to lower link. Or will just the strut come out, I cannot see how the horse shoe bracket at the bottom of the strut would clear the drive shaft.

Your hard won experience would be much appreciated.
Cheers.

Take a look at this video on the Cayenne.

It covers replacing the air system with a coil, but it shows the installation of the coil strut assembly. So just work backwards from that.

Replace suspension items in pairs - that means fitting TWO new springs.
