Using special adaptation V.A.G 1752/1 for compression of springs, serially compress springs of a back suspension bracket and remove them (fig. 12–18). At use of the special adaptation for compression of springs watch, that, spring coils were reliably grasped, spring compression make from opposite sides.
The spring has very big effort of compression, therefore use only very reliable tool.
Remove protection of an arch of a back wheel.

Fig. 12–19. An arrangement of nuts (1) and a bolt (2) fastenings of the back shock-absorber and a raising bottom трапецеидального the lever adaptation V.A.G 1359/2

Jack with adaptation V.A.G established on it 1359/2 raise bottom трапецеидальный the lever (fig. 12–19).
