406 / 605 Front suspension strut upper bearing replacement

Discussion in 'Peugeot 406' started by Martin Whybrow, May 16, 2006.

  1. I've got a 406 2.0 petrol which developed a creaking noise from the front
    suspension when the steering is turned at low speeds. I jacked it up at the
    weekend and found the noise is coming from the front right strut; when the
    steering is turned, the spring is trying to turn in the top cup because the
    cup stays still; comparing this to the left side, the cup turns with the
    strut so the spring isn't trying to twist. I've looked at the parts
    breakdown on the service CD and there's a bearing in the top cup (part no.
    5035.32). I've ordered a new bearing (replaced by 5035.54) but I'm wondering
    how easy this is to replace; I fitted new front dampers last year and don't
    recall the top cup assembly coming to bits. Anyone done this on a 406 or
