Can someone please help me........
Just had my timing belt and water pump changed for peace of mind on my 156 jtd 8 valve and while it was there i got the stat fixed as it was running at 70 degrees. Got all my old parts because i like to keep things like that (don't know why maybe i'm just sad). Drove off up the road with a big smile on my face and not a care in the world feeling very proud of myself,drove home jumped out and popped the boot open and as i lifted the lid the bloody boot strut on the left snapped at the end. This is the second set thats gone now (bought last ones from ebay second hand).
Question is i don't have the boot spoiler so why do they keep breaking on me and is there a way of stopping it happening?
