I don't think the failed gaiter is a reason for failure, but it appears to have puked all the oil out, which is deffo a fail.....!

There's loads on e-bay - search on part number 5206AZ.

You are right Marc, that the Cit procedure involves pulling the suspension down till the damper length is 315mm, then fitting the new one. This is perhaps to pre-load the damper connections at the right angle before tightening the bolts. If you were worried, you could put the new damper on, then get someone to sit in the boot to compress it a bit before doing the bolts up.

"Shined" is the one that gets me to grate my teeth. I read mainly on a Kindle and it is ubiquitous there :(
I don't even know what that means, unless it's supposed to be the past participle of shine.

That’s not oil you see, I’ve been spraying WD40 over them to help when doing the job, they don’t seem to be leaking, I was going to remove wheel and jack up the leg to make it easier.
