Complete the guest account form with your personal and payment details and submit your order.

3. Your replacement struts have arrived, so how do you fit them.

Firstly, you need to remove the original gas struts from your vehicle checking that the strut you are about to fit matches in size to the original one. The majority of car struts are connected to the vehicle using ball and socket joints.

To remove the original struts, use a screw driver to lift the metal clip and then pull the strut away from the ball stud

To fit the new struts, if they have plastic ball joints, simply fit as the originals, by lifting the metal clip and pushing the strut onto the stud. Make sure the metal clip is then firmly in position to prevent the gas strut coming away from the stud during operation.

To fit new struts with metal ball joints, firstly you will need to remove the metal safety clip.

Now push the metal cup over the stud on the car (this may require some pressure). When the stud is firmly in the socket, replace the metal safety clip.
