As it's a gas strut you might try the usual suspects for gas struts. If it's got special ends will they unscrew?

Must be half a dozen suppliers. Who did you use for the replacement side struts?

the Dampener arrived to day the black body bit is longer than the original so not to sure if that is ok the same size but the pushy in bit is shorter it has come from AL KO and same part number fingers crossed it doesn't make a difference I will photo it tomorrow and show you all what I am talking about

these are the picture from Alko same part number as the old one

the top dampener is the old one from the Dandy the body is smaller

as you can see there is an sticky out bit on the new one

all fitted now with no problems or alterations just have to test it now but anything would be better than one that does not work

just been told " in using the original rear bolt and ordinary nylock nut was too deep so a stainless steal one was shallower "
