    Good morning.
    I have bought bilstein adjustable coilovers but I cant figure how to remove the top of the rear shock ie the adjuster, so I can get it through the rear mount of the car.
    Please help 15604153314575390610282618633531.

    Just put a spanner on the hex at your finger and it'll unscrew

    Ok so the cap has come off but it doesn't seem to be loosening anymore?

    Yeah managed to find the grub screws and have successfully removed the ends.
    I the problem I have now recording the ends . I have put them all back together but the dial doesn't click at each increment any more, it just seems to spin freely through the adjustment range rather than being notched. I don't know if I have bust it or just put the dial on wrong ?
