Hi Everyone:

If anyone has the part number for the gas spring that holds the glove box door open, can you please post it here. I'm doing a little project.

Essential information:

Part No: if you've got it.

otherwise:

- Expanded Length from center of ball joint to center of ball joint

- Compressed Length

- Lbs of pressure. Usually part of the part number.

Thanks,

John

I posted the part # a while back on MBO but that entire forum section is gone now. The mfr is Service Plus Distributors. I think it's SPD-GS-2100-20 here. I ordered one and got the black nitride model instead as they didn't sell the exact same replacement anymore.

You have a gas spring that holds your glove box door open?

Just checked my glove box, and its the SPD-GS-5000-20. As I said before they didn't have the exact same replacement last time so I got the black nitride.

FWIW, the trunk gas springs are SPD-GS-5200-20.

FYI - you can purchase these from a local NAPA store. Chances are they aren't in stock but depending on location you should be able to get them within a day or two. Here is the link that shows the cross reference chart for the NAPA part number on the SPD site. SPD/NAPA Link

If you ever decide to pull the boat out of the garage, make sure the engine cover is down or you'll need this information. That's what I heard anyway.

I got the gas spring from Napa. The issue is I think it still has too much pressure in it for my glove box lid. My lid is not as thick as the new ones, and I don't think re-enforcing it will make it strong enough.

I may need to find another solution of some sort.

Did you get one with 20 lbs of resistance? I think that's the lowest they go BICBW.

I've seen some people work around that issue John by packing so much stuff in the glove box, that it helps to push it open when released... Shocking.gif
