The strut insert is a cartrige that goes into
the strut housing wich by the way have a scre-
wed end for the insertion.
So all you can see is the chromed shaft for
The insert have the wet stuf so if there's a
leak it should show trought the coil at the
collar with the shaft.
We use to put a bit of oil into the housing
so the cartrige didn,t rustfreze into it.
That was 70th enginering, now you replace the
whole thing .
