I would like information about why the top of my front suspension has foam pieces around it that is falling to bits.

What causes this to happen?

Is there a sensible remedy to this?

The cause is most likely age and exposure to the elements.
The ONLY remedy is replacing the complete strut.

Thanks Mike.

It seems that a FIX ought to be available somewhere as there is nothing else wrong with strut : Is this a design defect of the C6? (never seen anything else like this part failure in any other vehicle.)
