Assistant: Are you fixing your 307 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No , have not tried anything as yet we are just seeing what options are available

Dear customer, do you want to see if there are any kind of hydrulics system or something that will help your daughter with the boot, right?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
as the boot lid is quite heavy and due to her balance problems she has a job to lift it to get her walking frame in and out.
Any info would be appreciated
Thanks

Dear customer there are certain mechanics tools that you could adapt to your daughter's car to make her access to the boot the easiest possible.
As an adapt of hydrulic arm with higher capacity than the originals as this that i will share with you:

There are also a kit known as a Electric tailgate lift Power Boot Power Tailgate lift which may be the better one to your daughter but i could not find the kit on the internet.

Furthemore there are also some garages specialist in car's modifications that will be able to make the job aven the peugeot dealerships are capable to adivese you on which tool may be better to install and do the job by themselves.

on the other hand the is fodac, they are specialist in this kind of modifications and if you contact them they will advise you and even make the job to the car.


I hope this information and contacts to be helpful to you to make the modification to improve your daughter's car.
is there anything else i could help you dear customer?
