Does anyone know how the little gas cartriges that hold up the hood and the trunk lid can be removed? It looks like there is some type of spring clip on each end of them, but I'm not sure exactly how to pop them off.
I just want to clarify on what you described. I take it that the spring clip needs to be pryed off the end of the strut in the right direction (with a screwdriver if special tool is not available), and once the clip is off the end of the strut will pop off the post that its attached to? I don't want to fubar it .
