Does anyone know the sizes for the gas struts that hold open the 2 side storage covers and the engine cover on the 2006 or newer x1...

Take the old one down to NAPA. They should be able to set you up

I just got new ones yesterday for an 04 205V. 30lbs and 12 inches. Haven't installed them to make sure but sure they look like the right ones.

Used this as my guide.........

agara: My engine cover (PS205) was SPD-5300-30. Like I said before randpcarraiges on ebay $11.95 ea. I am going with the 60# instead of 30# because I am sick and tired of getting hit in the head with that damn cover. It comes down quietly and packs a few stars!

looks like the engine hood cover for the vdrive is 15inches while the side covers are 12inch both use 30#...
