    Replacing astra front strut mounting

    The strut mounting for the front shocker absorber on my "m" reg astra 1.4 needs replacing. I was wondering how i go about replacing it? Can i just drop the front strut and replace the top mounting from inside the engine compartment and then slot the strut through it and do up the bolts?
    Or do i have to remove the complete suspension strut first and then change the front strut mounting?
    Any help appriciated to save the effort in this hot weether.

    Cheers Taffy

    Need to take the whole leg out, compress the springs and take the top mount off.
