Bmw E39 M5 rear top mounts
March 4th, 2012
This M5 has developed some light insulated suspension clonks from the rear of the car.
Time for some new shock absorber top mounts.
New top mounts to be fitted.
To access the mounts the rears seats need to be removed.
And the shock absorber unbolted at the bottom where it joins the rear suspension.
Now undo the 3 top nuts and the shock can be removed.
Using spring compressor tools compress the spring and then undo the mount.
Here’s a pic of the new top mount fitted ready to reinstall to the car.
