Gaz They operate by way of Gas Struts, the same as the bonnet.
You could either get new ones, or get them re-gassed.
See easy fixed.

Re: Help - EBS2 Boot problems

I had to secure the braket that the gas struts fit onto behind the seats.It had broken away as the spot welds came away.I just used some self tapping screws.The sides of the back seat has to come out to get access..
Thats if struts are o/k but not working..Dangerous too...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
