Suspension and steering / Rear suspension leaf spring shackle (P100 models) - removal and refitting


Note: All self-locking nuts and spring washers must be renewed on reassembly.

Removal
1 Chock the front wheels, jack up the rear of the vehicle and support on axle stands placed under the side members. Note that a loaded vehicle must not be jacked under the differential casing.

2 Support the relevant side of the rear axle with a jack, using an interposed block of wood under the axle tube to spread the load.

3 Unscrew and remove the spring shackle-to-underbody bolt and the leaf spring-to-spring shackle bolt, and remove the shackle components.

4 Examine the components for wear and damage and renew as necessary.

Refitting
5 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but renew all self-locking nuts and spring washers, and do not fully tighten the bolts until the weight of the vehicle is resting on its roadwheels.
