Default Tourer Strut preventive Mod

Those that have a Tourer will most likely have heard of the gas strut breaking out of the side panel, below is a preventive mod to help stop that from happening, I added three sets to different Tourers at the meet the weekend by using the plates in the photo's.

Today I went to Screwfix for a gate latch, while there I also spotted these below in the book, a jointing plate 97mm X 35mm & 2mm thick 10pk £3.49. code 66707.

These look to be just the job also if you require to do this fix on the tourer tail gate, you would have to drill a centre hole to allow the ball socket to screw back into the car as above in the how to photo's.

Top notch as always Arctic they look just the job.

Having had mine go 'ping' and the boot land on my head, I wish I'd pre-emptively strengthened the joint!

The Screwfix plate fits in width great, the length is also good.

1

2

The six holes could maybe used either to add liquid metal or spot welds?
3

I personally think its best to drill an 8mm-10mm hole in the centre and as above use the plate as I did in my photo's.
4

Cheap fix and you get a pack of ten, bonus for using the other plate for something else.

That looks a good spot Arctic,
I did look at those, before going for the original set, as I wasnt sure how they compare.
Guess the cable tray options are easier, but more expensive.

Chris
