How to remove top shock mount on a MK4 vw jetta Golf or GTI when changing your shocks DIY
Tools that you can use to remove the top front shock mount on MK4 Vw Jetta, Golf and GTI. The steps should be the same for model years 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and early 2005 since the later one was redesigned. The fit is tight so that is why I had to find something that worked easily. I had to remove the shock mount on mine since the springs were cracked and wanted to change the shocks and redo the entire suspension. So I was redoing my entire suspension on my 01 Jetta TDI. I changed the Control Arms, Inner and outer tie rods, ball joints, sway bar links, springs and shocks. The car previously had KONI shocks on it and the issue I had was how to unbolt the top shock mounts from the shocks. In the video I will show you what tools you can use for the job. Below are the tools. These can be used for the Factory shocks 1. 13/16" or 21MM spark plug socket. You can insert allen wrench thru the top to hold the piston and use a wrench to turn the socket. 2. You can use a "L" wrench 13/16" or 21mm and tha twill allow you to insert the allen wrench 3. You can use deep socket wrench that has a 90 degree neck. This wrench you can use with the stock shocks that use allen wrench to stop piston from turning or KONI shocks that use a 11MM socket to hold the piston from turning. A wrench with a 45 degree neck will not work. the downside is that the 90 degree wrenches are very hard to come by and kinda pricey 4. You can use a Kobalt Xtreme Access pass thru socket and wrench. I bought mine from Lowes and have seen the kits sell cheaper on eBay. This setup can be used with the KONI's and stock shocks. 5. I was informed that Harbor freight sells wrenches that will work. They were not close to me though. =( bednaabcd Copyright © 2015 Adam Bednarz. All Rights Reserved.
