Front top strut brace
« on: January 13, 2016, 16:15:49 PM »
Hi all and a happy new year. I've recently bought a strut brace off some who owns 3 calibras and I could do with some advice on fitting it. It has 3 holes on each side but as you know on the 2.0l 16v there's no fixing points on the top of the strut how do they go on? Its second hand so I've got no instructions. Is there someone who knows how???

Well if its like the one i had om my 8v where theres a alloy part that goes around the top of the strut turret......i just placed the brace in place and made shure it sits right...mark the holes...then drill them....i used 5mm then a 10mm bit....fitted the bolts.....bit of a fiddle but worked ok.
