Gas Hood Struts

Recommended Posts

The struts that hold up the hood are pretty much gone. The hood barely stays up, and if it does it only stays up for like a minute.

So I am going to get a replacement pair. How hard is it to change the struts? Does anyone know of how to change them, or a tutorial?

The hood is pretty heavy and somewhat awkward to hold securely while replacing the struts - at least two people should perform this procedure..

1- Grasp the upper end of the strut securely and pull out sharply to detach it from the ballstud.

2- Remove the bolt from the lower end and remove the strut.

3- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
