    I need to replace my tailgate struts; I can find no instructions in my manual or on the Web.

    w210 tailgate struts

    Thanks a million for the drawings

    do you know of anybody who has actually tackled this job, i have the front strut mounts disconnected but any tips on getting the rear mounts away??

    do you have to remove the rubber boot and if so how on earth do you get in back on?

    I was also wondering why you have to remove the central rear roof trim panel?

    Any hands on tips would be much appreciated...didnt realise how heavy that rear door was , unless iron oxide is heavier than normal steel.

    cheers

    Hi Malcolm,

    My turn, the tailgate on my 2002 W210 Avantgarde estate keeps clouting me on the head or shoulders, I swear the darn thing's got it in for me.

    Since others will no doubt need the same info, would you consider uploading the destructions to http://www.fileswap.com and share the link?

    And can anyone help out with the right part number so I can order them before I dismantle the car please?

    According to SGS Engineering's website, the choices are: 2119800364, 2119800464 or 2119800564

    The price seems good at £12.99 each.

    Many thanks!

    Any help anyone please?

    Is Television OK? Anyone knocked on his door or checked for signs of life? Has his car gathered leaves under its tyres? :D
