Hi all.
The tailgate struts on my car are beginning to weaken somewhat.
When tailgate is fully open, a strong breeze will make it fall to a point where it continues under it's own weight and closes.
It has hit my head a couple of times, with a few choice words from me lol.
Question i have is, has anyone fitted a pair of struts with springs ? (see picture).The springs push the tailgate open then the struts push the tailgate all the way open once it is released from the catch upon unlocking.
If anyone has can you let me know the type and where you bought them from please.I know it may make me sound lazy but i figured it would be a nice addition to my car if i can find some.
TIA.

My wifes Fiesta does the same thing. I've not looked at changing them at all yet, not my car and she's smaller than me, but I have opened the boot and banged my head into it as it's not opened fast enough before now. Maybe I should look at replacing them.
