Trunk lid gas shock absorber is a mechanism that provides smooth lifting and lowering of the lid, as well as its keeping in the opened position without using additional supports.

Main characteristics

4 operation tips

  1. Manufacturers do not specify the exact operational lifetime for the component, as it mostly depends on its operation intensity. Replace the part if necessary.
  2. Try to avoid sharp movements during manipulations with the trunk lid, especially during the cold season.
  3. Protect the part from hits and do not disassemble it: there is pressurized gas inside of it.
  4. Remember, that it is necessary to replace the components on both sides of the trunk. During this it is important to follow the mounting position, recommended by the manufacturer.

Defects of the trunk lid gas shock absorbers, their causes and signs

  • Loss of shock absorber cylinder gas pressure. This defect is a common result of seal wear-out. In this situation, the shock absorber doesn’t maintain the trunk lid in the opened position.
  • Deformation of the cylinder or rod. These defects, as a rule, occur as a result of a road accident, or due to other b mechanical impact, leading to inability of the component to perform its functions.
  • Rod jamming. It can be the result of soiling of the part inner elements, caused, for instance, by regular rides on dusty roads. It becomes impossible to open or close the trunk lid at this defect.
  • Loosening or breakage of the fasteners. This defect usually happens due to excessively high tightening torque or, on the contrary, loosening of the fastening bolts. It results in unprompted demounting of the parts.
