Have had a look but cant see how they would be replaced.

So, firstly what is the correct name for these thingys, second, can i get replacements and third, is it something i can do myself ?

Many Thanks

1) Struts
2) yes
3) not sure about the megane, but a few simple tools are usually enough to change them with.
