    I've replaced the hood and deck lid struts and never removed any bolts on a retro. Just removed the clips and installed the new struts.. Sure it was not one of the other nice classics you had?

    I always do the old”volvo trick” on gas spings that hit me in the head…
    grab it and pull it so it bends that makes it stay up one more year
    worked on all volvo 245 trunkhatches
    (but i was young and new springs costed more than a used Volvo hihihi)

    Replaced mine thru AutoZone, they had them in stock. Huge difference.

    My 'Bird's trunk lid was always a bit wimpy from I first purchased it in 2009. It wasn't until I replaced both struts did I realize how the lid really snaps up when opened.
    Quick and inexpensive fix, for sure -- better than a head-banging to remind.

    Trunk Lid Dropping Sore Head

    Received a real BANG on the head today from the trunk lid. It was not the first time but today's was the hardest. I was going to wait until Spring, but now is a better time.

    Looking for a source to purchase new gas springs. If you know of a source please advise me & I would appreciate the part numbers.

    Thanks
Working...
