Q&A

A single Mercedes SLK Class 1998-2004 Cabriolet bonnet gas strut with a 2 year warranty and new fixings. Includes free printed & video mounting instructions. Replaces part number(s) 1708800229, 9186FM. Requires the original part to be sent to us for modification.

UK Made - not a cheap imitation from the Far East or EU.

We recommend always replacing struts as a pair to keep the force even between them - often replacing just one strut causes the older strut to fail soon after. This is because even if an old strut hasn’t totally failed, it will have lost pressure and matching it with a new strut will cause unequal forces between the two struts, side loading and premature failure of both struts.

  • 30 years manufacturing experience

  • Heavy duty industrial grade gas struts

    Great service
    I ordered the bonnet strut online and received an email asking me to call SGS which I duly did. They explained that the original plastic "button" on the strut (at the bonnet end) needed drilling and tapping to fit the new strut which has an 8mm thread rather than whatever the original is. To save time and having to return the old strut I asked them to send the new one as I can do the tapping myself. It arrived the next day and fitting took 15 minutes including tapping the button. Many thanks for a great service and communication.

    Efficient transaction
    Just a quick line to say that all struts have now been received thanks and I’ve managed to very easily fit/replace them with the aid of the comprehensive fitting instructions and I find them to be just the job!!

    Thanks once again for all your assistance – I would have no hesitation in recommending your company after this very efficient transaction.

    Good service
    Thank you for the fast and efficient service, I sent my old gas strut in to swap the plastic sheath over on Monday and had my new gas strut back on Wednesday. I was impressed with the speed and your customer service team, specially Thomas who called me to inform me of progress. I would have no problem recommending you to friends who need a similar product in the future.
