.....so buy some new ones :cheesy: Oh, and by the sound of the description, you need to order two. I think that price listed is for just one piston.

my hood pistons no longer keep the hood open...
Or you can do what I had to do with the Mercedes - use a wood prop rod ( the springs were in need of an adjustment)..
These "shocks" or "pistons" or devices are commonly know as struts.
Try your local junque yard..
They may be the same as the ones used on the Saab 9000 - maybe...

They've got air in them, so there's a chance that they'll work better when warm weather comes so maybe you can put it off a little while.
