Tailgate struts

Recommended Posts

The left-hand one on my Esprit looks tired as evidenced by leakage of oil and difficulty releasing the tailgate catch (by pressing down on the spoiler and presumably recharging the strut, the lid opens then on both sides and not just the right hand).

Are these generally available or does Lotus have a one of their impenetrable supplier-only agreements? I know that the right hand-struts serve also to transmit electrical power to the brake display light in the spoiler and that both sides have a lock facility to support the tailgate unassisted. It's only the left-hand side one that I need.

Many thanks.
