At a guess, they are all cr&p.

But treat yourself to a look at  the generous greasing that
mine had when I opened them up for a look.

   

B*gger all.  Angry

Got a good glop of CV grease in each now.

To open them up, you sort of gently unwind the sort of keyringy thing that holds them on.

Mind the quick's of your nails, it will hurt if you get it wrong.Exclamation

Oh you might also need access to a decent nut splitter.

Just avoid the plastic ones. Most need an Allen key to hold the joint whilst you undo the nut. Make sure your Allen key is a good fit

Torx ones are out there too, but little difference if seized.

I always grab the angle grinder first unless I know they are recently fitted.

As to which make I just go to my local motor factors - they supply to the local trade in my area and have a reputation to keep, better than using ECP etc and taking a punt.

Hacksaw through the thread behind the nut is normally quick enough.

I haven't bought Berlingo ones in a long time, but I normally try to get Febi Bilstein or Lemforder for suspension parts. You can normally get them from partsinmotion for as much as you can get tat from eurocarparts.

Forgot to mention - Autodoc of Germany are good for parts as you can choose OEM suppliers (Lemforder, Elring, Corteco, GKN Lobro etc). Use the app and buy when the discount is 41% for max savings. Delivery is ~1 week so buy in advance
