Gas Spring is a hydro-pneumatic device in which gas performs the function of the elastic element. It is installed in modern cars in the luggage compartment or under the hood, with the aim of a comfortable opening and holding the lid.

Types of gas springs

By design:

  1. With single rod seal and the "rod down" direction of installation.
  2. With double rod seal and an optional installation as concerns the rod direction.
  3. Gas spring with the oil chamber.

By type of damping at the end of course:

  1. Hydraulic.
  2. Dynamic.
A gas spring construction
  1. The cylinder filled with nitrogen.
  2. The cylinder connector.
  3. The rod attached to the piston.
  4. Rod connector.
  5. Piston with orifices.
  6. A lubricant and a piston guide bush.

In the construction of gas springs there is a special seal and synthetic oil, providing trouble-free and long-term operation under all environmental conditions.

Tips for operating gas springs

The service life of gas springs is unlimited. Depending on the operating conditions they will last for many years. But the impact of environmental factors and mechanical damage can disable them. To extend the period of operation, it is enough to regularly clean the piston rods.

Faults of gas springs
  • connectors breakdown;
  • tight rod movement;
  • lubricant leak;
  • cylinder deformation.
Symptoms of gas springs failure
  • the lid opens by applying a large force;
  • the cover is not fixed in the open position;
Causes of faulty gas springs
  • force impact;
  • insufficient lubrication due to wear of the seals.
Replacing the gas spring

Repair of the gas spring is not done. In case of failure only the replacement is carried out. To do this:

  1. Raise the hood and fix it with an additional support.
  2. Loosen the fastenings and remove the kit.
  3. Install a new part and fix it.
  4. Remove the support and test the gas spring.
