zeintop hatchback lift support

I have a zeintop on my 2003 boxster. The hatch will not stay up=looks like the gas cartridges are worn out. There are no markings on them and every store I go to needs either a part number or make/model.Anyone know who makes the zeintop cartridges?

You should be able to take them into an auto parts store and match them up with the lift cartridges they have. I have replaced many different models with generics and they work wonderfully.

Time to get rid of it. I'll dispose of it for you.

Otherwise pull yours off and take to a auto parts store to match with what they have.

zeintop hatchback lift cartridges

After 3 trips to differant auto parts stores I've found the perfect repalcement lift cartridge. It is a Mighty Lift 95091. Just switch the connectors and they work perfectly.

So are you going to still use it or will it be available for us to buy it? I am thinking that you have used it already but still hoping you still have it.

I was removing my Zeintop and accidentally bent the strut. I've looked for the Mighty Lift 95091 online and am having trouble finding it. What parts store did you go to?
