Default Front suspension

I am going to strip the front suspension to replace the topper plate, is it as easy as compress spring, split track rod, bottom ball joint, remove brake caliper and drop assembly out? All seems a little too easy ! Thanks

If you mean the strut top plate then just remove the strut on its own no need to remove hub etc

Yes I learnt that on a 106, nightmare!.
I'll have a go tomorrow. The problem is the top plate is corroded, failed mot, looks like body work is fine, so hopefully changing top plate and bearing will sort it.
Thanks for advice.

Ok I have undone the top 2 bolts, and the 2 on the hub carrier, compressed the spring, but it still seems attached at the top. Any thoughts?

There is no need to compress the spring once the bottom bolts are out there is no tension in the spring anyway it should now fall out under its own weight must be rusted in place !!
