Gas Strut Replacement - How?

Recommended Posts

I've just obtained two replacement gas struts for the rear door on my 52 plate Avensis (previous shape model) but can't figure out how the old ones come off.

It looks like you have to pry them off with a screwdriver but I don't want to damage anything.

Can you offer any advice?

Thanks... :)

Hello Richard,

I have attached a couple diagrams showing you how, it is for the later T25 avensis but they should be the same, just remember to support the very heavy tailgate with something like a broom (stale end on the boot floor) and just do one side at a time.

Just single click the pictures to enlarge them

Regards .... Pete.
