gas struts Elite tailgate - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/ICE/HVAC & Other - The Lotus Forums Jump to content

I wonder if anyone tell me why the gas struts are fitted with the cylinder to tail gate and not car? I checked the manual and this how they show it. Usually they are mounted the other way around....

I have tried the both ways and they work to better the usual way with the cylinder to the car?

I just wondered if I missing something and there was an important reason why?


Cheers Simon

Hi mine are fitted cylinder to glass as well, cos that's the way they were before I changed them, old adage if its not broke don't fix it.
