Sorry I could not find it yet. May I have some time to find it ? If you are in a hurry I will it opt out so another expert can help. You let me know I will try and find some instructions for you. Can you upload pictures of you strut so I can see which one exactly and also maybe I can tell you by seeing the struts.

No problem !

Here is A link. The guy explains how to disassemble the strut. The first two big paragraphs talk about the struts at the windshield and then there is a space where he then talks about how to rebuild the trunk struts. Hope this information helps. I'll still try to find a video but the videos I seem are not of the same strut. Hope this information helps.
