I made a start today on swapping out the front shocks but fear I may have fallen at the first hurdle Embarassed

There is a large hose obstructing the cover in the engine bay. Seems fixed and I think it may be part of the aircon system which makes me even more uneasy. There was no mention of this obstruction the guide...just wanted to see if anyone figured a work around.

Many thanks

Just finished fitting Fox shocks front and rear. I faced the similar issue on the passenger side with the large hose and some plumbing from the air con. The standard stock turret was a Censored to get out. The trick is to push the hose down under the metal inter cooler connector pipe rather than pulling it up. You can also take out the captive bolt holding the air con pipe to give a bit more space.

It’s still a bit of a battle though Mad Much easier going back on with new Gywn Lewis turrets; they take up much less room
