I have been getting a nasty bang/jarring through the front suspension on the rebound after large bumps in the road and after today's drive I noticed a large puddle of suspension oil underneath one of the front suspension units. I suspect something has broken ........

I have never dismantled a sliding pillar unit, mainly because they are so reliable but also fear of their complexity, however, I think that I am going to have to take this side to pieces

Before I start, is there any advice, pointers, tools etc etc please ?

I think that it is one of the later units - TAV attached
