I wonder whether someone could tell me how to remove and replace the pressurised ram that lifts the centre console lid ?
The lid in my car has the "cupholders" piece, underneath the storage box lid, and when you press the release button, which is attached to the electric window switch panel, the lid does nothing, it doesn't rise as it should. I have been looking at the ram and there is no pressure init.
I have ordered a new one from Rimmer Bros, but on my car it looks to be fixed with a type of rivet. I am looking for suggestions on how to refix the new ram. It looks like I need to grind off the head of the existing rivet and fix the new one with nuts and bolts.
Any ideas, perhaps ?
