STUCK SUS­PEN­SION

Mini Magazine - - Tech -

Q Do you have any top tips for sep­a­rat­ing the rub­ber sus­pen­sion cone spring from the alu­minium trum­pet? I’m in the process of fit­ting Hi-Los. The driver’s side was fine and came apart no prob­lem, but the pas­sen­ger side is be­ing a real pain. I just can’t get them to part com­pany! Any ad­vice you can give would be a real help. Richard A You haven’t said if this is front or rear. Which­ever, the best start is to soak the joint in a re­leas­ing agent such as WD40. Do this sev­eral times through­out the day and leave it overnight. That should ease the cor­ro­sion hold­ing the two parts to­gether. If it does not sep­a­rate eas­ily, then some lev­er­ing with a de­cent sized pry bar will be needed. Pa­tience and per­se­ver­ance is the key here.
