Finally found a fix for the boot popping! Cheap too!

Recommended Posts

Okay so I've tried everything; adjusting the boot clamp position, coins, rubber washers, new springs - the lot. But this works and has done for the last two weeks and hasn't showed any signs of stopping!

 

What you need;

 

Clear plastic bumpons

Superglue / plastic glue

Cheers!

If you are sticking something on the underside of the pre-lifter thingy, as you are, how is this any different from the penny trick? Both make the spring compress a bit more.

Well from personal experience, the coins didn't work and the bumpons do...presumably it's because you cannot get near the thickness level of the bumpon with coins as the rubber surround will not stretch around the spring mechanism after say 5 coins. This method is also so much easier as you don't have to take anything off the car and don't risk damaging the paint (which again, you do with coins)

Blimey, I was able to order 8 :)

 

I ordered them prior to seeing that link, so got suckered into a couple of sheets! £6 I think but a bit smaller.

As per above, if you feel inclined to do so, drop a quid in the honesty box for the greater good :thumbs:

 

Please don't do it until you've got them and your happy its sorted your pop. I know from bitter experience that sometimes one fix for this is not enough! I'm not a trader, there are no refunds! Gifted as seen, all gifts are final!
