    Default

    Prop the tailgate up or have someone hold it up for you.

    You will notice there is a small clip at each end of the struts.

    Use a flathead screwdriver to prise them out a little whilst pulling the strut off the mount.

    Do one side at a time.

    The new ones will just clip over the mounts with a little pressure.
