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.

Anyone know?

The are spring clips, there is a tool to remove but they will remove with a screwdriver of the right size just make sure you push in right direction..............

IMA Z06 -- thanks for the tip.

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 :D.

Thats correct, the end of the gas strut has a round eye that fits an opposing pin, the spring clip is outside that holding it on.............

I think they call it a "C" ring ???
