Does anyone have access to the suspension section in the shop manual for the 2016 and up CX-9? I am looking to replace the rear shocks along with the front but cannot seem to find the steps. I assume to access you need to remove the cup holders but not sure what else.
I can't help, but I hope they changed the design compared to the previous generation.
I replaced rear shocks in my wife's 09 CX9.
Pretty much all the plastics in the back (as well as the 3rd row seats) had to come out to get access to the top nut. Not difficult, just time consuming. Once all that crap was out, removing/reinstalling the actual shock was a 5 minute job.
