View Full Version : 2003 PS197 - Can someone look at a gas spring for me?

I need a part number for the gas strut that holds up the observer seat when it's raised to access the storage. The label on my old one is partly wore off. It says SPD-GS-XXXX-40. I need to know what the XXXX is. If one of you guys has a 197 and can take a look at yours, I'd appreciate it.

Just take it off and into NAPA. They will take a few measurements and get you what you need.;)

When you find the right length and throw, the best replacement is the stainless version. A little bit extra money, but well worth it for the looks and the longevity.
