Part number for canopy gas struts?

Post by geoff_g »

Hey all, One of my gas struts for the canopy doors has given up, so the door does not stay open at all (pilot side of course :roll: )

And of course most of the markings on the struts on both doors have worn off... Does anyone have one handy (I'm guessing it's the same as the TSi strut)? I can make out "RS Camloc" and then a partial number "RS V-/30-23 11/14"

I can get a replacement strut locally, but need to let tkem know the pressure of the strut (company mentioned its usually marked on the strut in Nm)

Ahh - I *might* have found it - anyone from #slingsupport able to confirm if these are the right ones? I can just make out a '-979' on the failed strut...

Hi Geoff,
As per your link, this is the correct Gas strut.
