How to fit new uprated boot poppers / helper springs

Recommended Posts

So, a common fault that likely has affected us all at some stage is the problem with the boot not opeing properly.  The helper springs wear out so the boot lid doesn't open enough. 


Nissan wanted £105 for a pair of new springs but @Sim posted about upgrated springs from OpenTop for only £45 so I gave them a go. 


They are very strong.  Not used them that long but so far they work very well.  You do need to give the lid a bit of a slam so it closes properly. Maybe they are too strong!  I'd imagine if you had a large spoiler on the boot they'd still work.


I've made a video to show how they work and how to fit them.
