Guys, Last mod from me!! Another one from a long time back. Very basic write up here of how i have made my own mod to assist the boot lid with opening the full way with the use of an expansion spring. Guide and pictures below, as always any work copied is at other peoples risk! Bits required: 1x 180mm long expansion spring 1x 6mm x 80mm long bolt 3x securing nuts 1x washer 1x 5mm metal drill and drill Step 1 - choose a side to mod, i went with the right hand side lifting arm. Step 2 - gentle to remove the carpet trim, i suggest a blunt knife or similar to assist. Remember to remove the plastic securing clip by the lifting arm and the one behind the carpet level with the rear light. Now i would strongly recommend removing the whole carpet assembly but I wanted to see if this could work so I worked with the carpet in the way. Step 3- Remove the 2x plastic clips holding the plastic trunking to the lifting arm, and replace with a 6mm x 80mm long bolt. Step 4 - Once the bolt is through, add a securing nut to the bolt lightly clamping the plastic trunking to the steel inner bar. At this point you can now add the spring and add the washer and retaining nut, the washer is here only to prevent the spring sliding off the bolt. Step 5 - Locate the pre-drilled hole on the body brace bar as the picture below and drill a 5mm hole on the outer edge lip (upper most). You will see I had a cable tie in place to start with to check I had the right position for the spring to provide the right tension for opening. I would recommend testing the boot operation at this point, again be careful and operate the boot slowly to ensure no damage is caused and the boot shuts with a bit of resistance behind it. Once closed, place your hand in front of the back window before opening with the remote. I suggest this in case the spring you have chosen to use opens the boot too fast and causes damage, hopefully your hand will prevent this! To be honest you will have the feeling if the spring is under too much tension when trying to shut the boot, if it feels tight get a better spring as its not worth the risk causing damage or injury. If happy with the operation then re-fit all you carpet and admire your new fully opening boot! No more putting stuff on the floor in the rain!
