Perhaps not a problem, but my boot is excessively heavy. Are they all heavy or do my hydralics need attention? I haven't even lifted it with the roof up yet.

They are very heavy the lids. Mine does seem slower when it's colder. I can remember someone on the old forum having to replace the hydraulic lift. Arby the Italian.

OK. Many thanks. It's not a concern, but it does seem a little too heavy. Good job I'm fit isn't it?

I had the struts replaced early on as they only just stopped the lid from swinging shut. No problems since but it’s certainly not like a hatchback where it swings open for you.

I never knew that... can you remember the cost?. Can they be re gassed?

Barb,

I've always used the below company for gas struts. They're quite cheap. Your struts will have code number on them, and SGS can send you their equivilent.

It was done under warranty, so I don’t know the cost.
