Default Robart Robo Struts Help

Anyone know how to disassemble the Robo struts?

I want to replace the spring(s) inside with some with less tension.

Thanks for your help.

Remove the circlip that holds the trailing link pivot in place, then remove the pivot pin. The parts will come apart.

Be careful when removing the lock washer, if it jumps away you may never see it again.
