Need new struts for my 07 MX-5 PRHT. Difficult to find as most say they do not fit the PRHT. Then I have to figure how to take old ones off and put new ones on. Need some help with that from the knowledgeable folks out there. I have looked at the struts that are in place and cannot figure out how to get them off of the balls that hold them in place...do you just pull them off ?

Thanks,

TK

Figured it out, pretty easy and the new ones will save my fingers from being severed.

and the answer was (how to remove the struts)?

If I remember from the struts I put on my GT6 they do sort of pop on and off or you can lever the spring clip that holds them on the ball away from the strut, thus releasing the pressure holding them on the ball? Is that it?
