On my 1998 740iL the lower, rear spring pads have split, and are partially hanging out (about half of each pad is still in place under the springs, the other half of each is dangling).
Is it possible to unbolt the lower part of the strut, compress the spring, and put a new pad on from the bottom, without unbolting the top of the strut assembly?

Highly unlikely. Difficult to compress the spring while the upper mount is still attached, and impossible to work the
lower spring pad over the perch without tearing it. And cutting it and gluing it in place is out of the question. It will
not stay.
