A lot of you have been contacting me to ask for replacement oil seals for the ECS struts. I have not listed them before because this is a job that requires time and tooling. In a previous video, I gave an insight on how to remove the old ones but re-fitting is a little trickier. I planned on making a DIY tool for the job but I just can’t seem to find the time to finish it. For those of you that still want to try it yourself, I am now selling the seals but on the understanding that I can’t give you any help other than the tips that I am listing here.
- You must clamp the neck of the tube all the way round very tightly before attempting to open the tube as the tube will stretch and you will not get a tight seal.
- You must also clamp the neck of the tube tightly when refitting the new seal.
- Seal the tube closed all the way round simultaneously. Do not attempt to work your way round bit by bit.
- Force the seal down tightly as part of the seal is at the bottom as well as the side.
I hope this helps as this is all the help I am prepared to give at the moment.
The seals are £20 each plus post. Send me a private message if you are interested.
