Boot Operation Faulty?


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I suspect my boot isn't operating correctly. Not being the original owner of my F or a previous owner of an IS I've no idea if its working correctly.

Closing the boot needs very little effort just a touch of downward force and it closes - all good. Opening on the other hand requires about twice as much force until it's nearly open then it gets fairly easy once about 80% open, like a similar force when closing.

Most modern boots are pretty easy to open and require minimal effort, this doesn't feel right and it's an awkward movement. Feels like a damper/gas strut (if they have them) has failed. Any ideas? is this the norm?
