ARMS TO HOLD BOOT OPEN

Resolved Question:

ARMS TO HOLD BOOT OPEN

Hi..

 

Hopefully i can help..

 

Ok..If your having to hold the boot in the open position manually - then the usualy cause for that would be gas struts as these should hold the boot open when in the up position..its likely one maybe leaking something to check on and the other isnt able to hold the weight of the boot..so going by your description having to use your arms to hold the boot open id be looking at having those checked/ replaced..I do hope this helps
