Full Version Xm Glovebox Strut

Club XM Forum > XM General Issues
I thought it might be nice to have a working glovebox lid in at least one of my cars and made enquires at the local main dealer for the parts. It transpires that the series 1 hydraulic strut is no longer avaiable, although the series 2 is, which looks very similar. Does anyone know if they are interchangeable? The series 1 catch is still listed curiously enough, but I suspect may be quite difficult to install. Regards, Matthew T.
I was actually told by a dealer once the S1 strut is available ONLY
incorporated in the whole glove box assembly and is/was still available... huh.gif

The "head" on series 2 struts is wider than series 1's but should fit with a little careful bodgery wink.gif

Thank you Colin and Andrew for the advice and I might purchase a series two strut and hope for the best! The catalogue that I saw showed the series one strut incorporating upper and lower brackets, but the series two strut on its own, which might be the difference that Andrew was referring to. Regards, Matthew T.
