Gas spring rods

Wondering if anyone has the part number for the engine rear door gas spring rods 16" for my 2003 40` alpine? Mine have given up...

Thanks for the help.

Those usually have enough info on them to get a replacement from hatchlift.com. They are sold by extended length, collapsed length, pressure (force), and type of end attachment. I have found them at RV and auto parts stores but a lot of the time they will not have the exact one, Look for numbers on the body of an old one and google it.

You can often find reasonably compatible struts online. I replaced the pair of gas struts for the trunk compartment on my coach through Amazon, decoding the specs of the original, and then buying a pair that had slightly higher strength, but at half the cost of the ones that matched the originals. It has been a couple of years, but as I recall the originals had 12 pounds of force, by contrast the replacements have 15 pounds.

….I recently replaced the rear engine door struts on my 03--I'll see if I can find a number for you. Above input is good, struts are generic and listed by length and lift weight. Another factor is the hinge system on the door. I found that after lubing the hinges, the new struts no longer held the door up. I used a hammer and metal weight to slightly crush the rivetted hinges so they created more fiction--issue solved. If old struts are leaking--that is another issue.

Take it to your local auto parts house, they most likely have them in stock. You can at least get a part number that way, then look on line.
