strut removal

  1. Minimum to remove front strut assembly

    Suspension & Braking
    I want to remove the front strut assembly on 2003 325i E46 M54. What is the minimum that I have to remove? I have read in Bently's to remove brake assembly, tie rod and one other link in order to get the strut out of the knuckle. But really how far do I have to go? What are the pros and cons say...
