Question How do you remove / replace tailgate gas struts?

Hi all,

The gas struts on my Sport Tourer boot are weak, you have to push the boot lid open once it reaches 3/4 the way up.

I've found some new ones on eBay but how do you get the old ones off and replace them?

The joints look weird and can't see how they come off...
