    Default Boot Struts

    I'm finally getting round to fixing all the niggly problems with the car and one of them is the bootlid.

    When i open it rather than slowly lifting with the struts it opens so far then bangs open like theres no gas in them, but when i move it it feels a bit loose. Could it be the struts just need replaced or could the hinges be knackered too?
