Bout Rear Hatch Struts

Why Replace Rear Hatch Struts Before You Go On Holiday?

Tyres checked, windscreen blades still in perfect order, lights work, but what have you forgotten? Nothing? Are you sure? What about the rear hatch struts? Perhaps not essential for safe travel in the city, but crucial if you want to unload groceries or travel with suitcases without the rear hatch lid coming down on your head.

Normally the struts work for years, but regular usage, bumpy roads, or a leak in one of the cylinders can cause these shocks to fail, often without warning. Replacing these can be a chore, especially if you don’t have the right equipment. Then there is the issue of the workshop not having your particular vehicle make and model’s struts. It means waiting and some more waiting.

What if it is possible for someone to visit your home or office to replace the rear hatch struts? Wouldn’t that save you time and money since you will not have to take your vehicle to a repair facility? You also don’t have to sit around while it is done. Instead, you can carry on with business, and the professional installer will do it quickly, using a machine and tools specifically designed for the installation of boot absorbers on your particular vehicle make and model.

The machine used is specifically invented and patented for the task of fitting struts. We have fitted gas-filled supporters on 98% of vehicle makes in South Africa. We also provide a two-year guarantee on the products we install.

How Do You Know It Is Time to Have the Rear Hatch Struts Replaced?

If the hatch won’t to stay open, doesn’t stay in the closed position, the boot lid remains open even if you put enough pressure on it to close it,  the lid makes a rattling sound or slowly moves into the close position, then it is time to replace the boot shocks. These become worn over time, and a boot lid that doesn’t open or close properly can also cause dirt to fill the rear space.
