Disassembly
1.
Compress the coil spring with a strut spring compressor. Do not compress the spring excessively.
2.
Remove the lock nut (B) after removing the cover (A).

Tightening torque:
24.5 ~ 29.4N.m (2.5 ~ 3.0kgf.m, 14.5 ~ 18.1 lb-ft)

3.
Gradually turn the bolt on the spring compressor to slowly release the tension from the spring. Then, disconnect the components.
4.
Reassembly is in the reverse order of disassembly.
   
Do not reuse the self locking nut.
When compressing the coil spring, place the hook to have bilateral symmetry.

If the centerline of the shock absorber does not align with the coil spring, push the shock absorber to align the centerline.

Inspection
1.
Check the components for damage or deformation.
2.
Compress and extend the piston rod and check that there is no abnormal resistance or unusual sound during operation.
3.
When disposing the shock absorber, fully extend the piston rod (A) and then drill a hole on the B section to discharge gas from the cylinder.
   
The gas coming out is harmless, but be careful of chips that may fly when drilling. Be sure to wear safety goggles or eye protection when performing this task.
