Trunk Lift support; Source in Europe / Germany
« on: August 05, 2022, 01:07:32 PM »

Hi, i need your help regarding both lifters in the trunk. The shipping and customs costs from overseas to Germany are higher then the parts itself.

Are any cylinders, maybe from other cars fit?

From my old BMW e36 convertible the top cover lifts nearly fits, only the force is to low. Its a Stabilus.

Does anbody knows sources in Germany or compatible lifters?

oring for XR2 with spoiler is:
Lift Cylinder

In the US, there are gereric lists that show lengths and lift power, you might try that.

In the US, some parts stores can cross reference the info you have to obtain a new part.

If you visit Rockauto, you can check the dimensions of the dampers by clicking on the "Info" button next to the part.
You can find the supports under "Body & Lamp Assembly" and then "Lift Support". (https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/mercury,1991,capri,1.6l+l4+turbocharged,1196636,body+&+lamp+assembly,lift+support,1404?)

There's one Stabilus damper listed, but it says it's only for a non-spoiler trunk, i.e. non-XR2. Don't know if this is true, but maybe you try that damper (it has all lenghts listed in the info section) and check back with Stabilus. Part number is 5B515763.

Thanks for the support!

I already check Stabilus shop, the number ist unknown on their page.

Also all other brands mentioned at Rockauto are unknown in german car parts shops.

Guten Tag!

I found good availability over eBay. Even had a choice of with/without spoiler. Shipping wasn’t too bad.

Cheers
