BMW X5 Suspension Replacement

The Cartisan team picked up the BMW X5 on the specified date and time and took it to the Cartisan Preferred Workshop.




The Cartisan adviser parked the BMW X5 in the service bay. The technician popped the bonnet open and used a two post lift to raise the X5 up.

The technicians removed the front wheels of the BMW X5. They began to dismantling the BMW X5 suspension components. They removed the tie rod end & the steering ball joint first. The technicians disconnected the lower control arms and removed them. They disconnected the stabilizer link and unscrewed the bolt holding the strut assembly from the engine bay.

The technicians used a set of clamps and an impact wrench to compress the strut’s spring so that the mount, buufer & boot could be replaced with brand new ones. The technicians reassembled the new strut kit with the new buufer, boot & mounting.






The Cartisan technician fitted all the new suspension components back onto the BMW X5’s chassis.

The adviser then took the car to the wheel alignment shop where the workshop technicians made adjustments to the suspension to ensure the handling of the BMW X5 would be optimal.
