If a nut strongly of a korrodirovan, try to turn out it by means of a chisel and the hammer.
If the nut did not manage to be turned out in the ways stated above, use a drill for drilling of openings in a nut. When drilling damage of the shock-absorber therefore it is better to apply such way only in case of replacement of the shock-absorber is possible.
We recommend to replace a nut of fastening of the shock-absorber new irrespective of its state.

PREVENTION
Replace shock-absorbers only with couples (right and left at the same time).

15. Replace the damaged compression course buffer.
