Re: Boot problem

It's usually the gas struts that keep the lid up.
If they get weak or leak, the lid will drop back down.

Check if you have these fitted to your boot. fits=Car+Make%3ARenault&hash=item4d073529bc

An austerity fix is a piece of wood to hold it up but that kind of spoils the " look at me, I've got a Cabriolet " err... look.
Especially if the wood slips and the boot lid drops on your head while you load your shopping.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
