Removing rear struts from my S60?

Post by slowswede » Wed Jun 26, 2019 5:43 pm

Hey guys, new here but just a question about my rear struts. I’m seriously mind boggled how they’re held in. I have an 04 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD and I haven’t seen this on other S60s but I’m sure others have this.

Referring to the picture if it helps any, I started removing two bolts before noticing two more under the frame as circled. Do I need these out to remove the strut? If so how the heck do I get them out?

Apologies if this has been answered, I tried searching but haven’t found anything on it. Thanks!

IIRC, there’s an FCP video on YouTube where he replaces the rear shocks on an S60

I thought there was only 3 bolts.

X2 on checking out the FCP video. It’s very detailed.

*I take it back. AWD is different. Can you get the shock cylinder bolt off without removing the mount?
