    Question Random Boot Question!

    Hi,

    This is a wierd one.. my boot seems to have lost the ability to stay open by itself!
    I had a look and one of the Hydraulic arm things seems to be leaking gunk so its obviously down to that.
    Has anyone heard of this happening before, and how much it would cost me to get it sorted out? Not the end of the world but everytime I put something in the boot I nearly knock myself out!
    Thanks, Paul

    I thought this was a common fault on all hatchbacks and estates, seen loads of peple with a length of broom handle in the boots for the keeping up as it were.

    really rare on vectra C's and derivatives..

    the struts are easy to change yourself.. so just a trip to the dealers will sort it out..

    I had one strut lose it's gas on the tailgate on my Signum - duly changed under warranty. If you're 2004 is out of warranty, then the part isn't too pricey and as Mark said above easy to change yourself and avoid their labour charges.
