Replace rear struts ford taurus sedan – Auto Repair Chat

Surplus electronic parts : https://epartsconnect.com

In this video I show you how I replaced the struts in the rear of a 2001 Ford Taurus Sedan. We used quick struts in this video, the process is similar for strut cartridges except you'd have to swap over the springs using appropriate tools and equipment. Refer to your shop manual for the proper procedure when repairing your car.

    what a frigin mess to have to go through to change struts and what an engineering debacle by Ford!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Scott says:

    It more work just to do top rear mounts than on the lower side. Your right about the trunk. It would be easier there

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Cain says:

    I know it's been years but just a little fact on the bolt/screw that type is called self tapper and the other you described is called self drilling why one verses the other the tapper won't leave much metal shavings if any and the driller will leave a bunch of shavings. Just a FYI…Larry

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheBenjamess says:

    I can easily see and get to the four bolts that remove the back seat back rest. So I am wondering. Why is it necessary to remove the bottom portion of the seat?

    My 751,000 mile 2003 taurus ses with almost all original equipment, replaced front wheel bearings at about 600,000 miles, but engine and transmission, struts, ball joints, etc… are all original, never rebuilt. While watching video, I say to myself that I should change those parts, but after watching, I say if it's not broke ! Don't fix it ! Going for the one million !

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars corey Babcock says:

    I have to do this for my 03 ford taurus ses the struts are leaking oil and creaks when I drive around but can't afford to get them I could probably do the work myself but I just can't afford it
