I would advise to never buy used suspension parts. In my B3 3.3 from 1999 everything was way beyond normal wear and tear with the dampers not working anymore.

Just buy a new set of springs and dampers at FMW in Germany. Will totally transform the car..

Use a hair dryer to heat them up and remove by inserting a small pointy object behind the sticker..

I've also had this done recently on my B3 BiTurbo at 85K.

Don't notice that much difference, but pictures before/after only showed mine had mild build up.

Paid €500.

Disconnect the secondary air pump as shown in the pic on the previous page. Just remove the electrical connector. Start the car. Noise gone? Buy a new pump. Noise still there: go to a specialist. Mine was horrible on my B3 S until I changed the pump out, the bearings were shot and each time when sta...

Most common are the xenon washer pumps that extend when you use the washers..

The part numbers on the pictures on the FMW site are not correct for all cars. That doesn't matter much because you have to give your chassisnumber to Frank and you will receive the correct parts. It's cheaper to buy a complete kit instead of just replacing one damper/spring at a time. Not to mentio...
