Hiace Pop Top


Recommended Posts

Does anyone out there happen to have replaced or had replaced a roof gas strut for a Toyota Regius Hiace pop top? Newly acquired 1998 Jap import which had a professional conversion to campervan with rear elevating full roof in 2015, however, when i opened the roof for the first time, the nearside strut has completely sheared from the linkage to the roof. I have sourced company who manufacture the strut (Metrol in Northampton), but as i can't lower the roof, i cannot drive to an appropriate campervan dealer, so will need to attempt to replace myself. Looks simple enough, but i know only too well that it never really is!

Any advice/tips before i order the new struts (come in pairs), would be gratefully accepted!
