- How do I know if there's a problem with my gas struts?
It’s a good idea to check the following on a cold morning as this influences the gas inside the strut. If the strut is slow to open, sags or can’t hold weight well there is likely a problem. It’s important to replace them once this happens as they may drop very suddenly and cause injuries.
- How often do I need to change my gas struts?
This is individual to the car user for several reasons. The design of the vehicle and quality of stock gas struts may not be very high – which could influence when they fail. If you use your struts often, this can also impact their lifespan. There is no rule of thumb but testing your struts often on a cold morning is a good idea.
- How do I know which gas struts are the right type for my vehicle?
Natrad’s range of gas struts are all individual to make and model of a vehicle. We can easily select the right set for your needs.
- Do all cars have gas struts?
No, especially not in older cars. They tend to have a spring loaded bonnet or boot hatch and often rely on a metal rod to keep the panel open. Modern cars can also have electrically assisted hatch systems.
