    My father lives out in Spain, has a 1999 Megane. The rear hatch struts/damper have given out, so I found him some on ebay and they have just arrived there. The problem is he can't see how they come off! (And I'm obviously not there to help) Can anyone describe how they come off? Do you need...

    Hi. I have to replace the boot struts of our megane mark II 2005 model. I purchased some new ones from europarts and removed one from the car to check it. The size is correct although the end bits that push on to the ball joints are rotated slightly differently. Enough that they won't...

    Hi Guys. A front spring has snapped on the Scenic. Funnily enough, it seems to have snapped overnight, rather than whilst in use!? Wifey thought it was driving funny when she pulled off and reported 'pieces of metal' on the drive!! Fortunately she took advice not to do her trip, and I later...

    So I need to replace the tailgate struts on my Scenic. I've seen the other threads in the forum, plus the guidance on sites like this one, which make it look and sound quick & easy (been bitten like that before !). On my car the top end of the struts is easy to get at, but the bottom end is...

    I just got hold of a set of new struts, as I have to use two hands to lift up the tailgate every time. The new one's are worse then the old originals, with now power at all, they hold the tailgate fully open, but that's about it I do have a rear spoiler, so do I need an extra strength ones.
