Boot lid struts are not repairable. In case of malfunction, the components are to be replaced. Installation is easy to be done by yourself. Stick to the following algorithm:

  • Open access to the component’s fasteners. You may have to remove the trim of the boot lid, and, sometimes, that of the passenger compartment and, partirally, of the roof.
  • Lift the boot lid and secure it in position with safety supports.
  • Using a flat screwdriver, release the top and bottom fastening clips, and gently pull out the faulty boot lid strut.
  • After you have bled the air from the new part, install it instead of the old part.
  • Do the same with the second bood strut. Remember: the trunk lid gas struts should be always replaced in pairs.
