    Just to refute John, Welwyn Merx have told Craig they can rebuild the struts now and my local Audi guy (!) mentioned at my last MOT that he has successfully rebuild a strut (Danny at RSD in Daventry).

    You can also source struts from the US at $400 per corner (significantly less than any UK supplier) but they only offer a 30 day warranty outside the US (Lifetime in the US).

    Ah apologies, I’m a bit behind with my reading! I do recall the information a week or so regarding rebuilding and my mind read Valve Block not strut! Old age I guess :(

    I popped down to Danny at lunchtime - he's looking into getting some parts and costing up a rebuild service and will come back to me (I've got a spare one for him to start with :) ).

    I'll keep folks informed.

    Good luck with the so called quick release coupling on the hydraulic pipe, a real pain those are unless they’ve been proactively treated...

    I'll keep you informed or alternatively give him a call, tell him we've spoken and he'll help sort you if he can. He's a great bloke and very well regarded.
