- Struts or cartridges, whatever you call them arrived early.
- They were the correct replacement part for this Snugtop cover.
- None yet
COMMENTs: The following issues are not the fault of the new replacement cartridges. They are an overview of the problems I encountered trying to reuse the ball mount studs that the support cartridges attach to.
SIDE NOTE: I bought my truck used and the struts worked well in 2013. By the end of 2015, the tonneau cover would only stay up about 1 out of 10 times. I had to have a 1x2 board handy, to keep lid propped up.
Long story short, I believe my old cartridges to be the ORIGINAL struts/cartridges that came with the cover. Cartridges made by/for Snugtop.
The part numbers on the old cartridges were Snugtop part numbers that can be safely replaced/substituted by this particular amazon cartridge part.
REMOVAL PROBLEMS (save yourself some heartache) : The original cartridges had an extremely tight fit into the ball mount studs, used at each end of the cartridge. There are also safety pin clips that are added to keep the cup and ball junction safely together.
The safety pin clips are removed first, then you need to pull apart the ball end of bolt, from cup end of cartridge.
Even AFTER REMOVING the safety clips from my old snugtop cartridges, the joints proved quite hard to separate.
I encountered that problem.
The old cartridges and bolt junctions on my old cartridges were so tight in fact that I truly doubt the safety clips that hold the cartridges into the ball mount studs, were even needed.
The original cartridges pivoted just fine during use, so it was not any sort of corrosion issue.
It seems the snugtop cartridges added some sort of EXTRA , round, embedded, internal safety ring clip as a secondary safety measure. To prevent the junction from coming apart. At least in my case.
I could barely get 3 of the 4 ends disconnected from the ball mount studs. The 4th cartridge cup end, I literally had to saw off. Good thing the old strut's cup end was soft metal and the ball mount bolt is harder metal. I was able to salvage and reuse the ball mount bolt.
NOTE: If you have a tonneau cover and are replacing it's cartridges, you do NOT want to try and bend or hammer APART the cup end of cartridges from the ball mount end of the bolts WHILE ATTACHED TO TONNEAU COVER. . The attaching tonneau cover's hardware bracket DOES/WILL bend and you COULD possibly break off part of the attachment bracket from the tonneau cover.
I had to unbolt both of my cartridges and remove totally from the cover and truck bed ends. Then I fought with removing the cup end of the strut from the bolt end away from the truck. A bench vise works well.
In hindsight, I STRONGLY SUGGEST just purchasing a 4 pack of new ball mount bolts/studs, in addition to this set of 2 cartridges/struts.
They look like this [http://www.amazon.com/Ball-Studs-13mm-S316-Stainless/dp/B007L7AB68/ref=pd_sim_263_7?ie=UTF8&dpID=41dKzOQGRSL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=03RMVX0V7MVGKEZMFBQP]
Then you can simply prop up your rear cover, remove the nuts from 4 ball mount bolts, from each end of 2 cartridges. Disconnect the 2 complete cartridges from truck bed and from tonneau cover..
Then snap together a NEW ball mount stud into both the top ball cup and bottom ball cup of each NEW cartridge. Realign the bolts into the old holes and reattach.
Yes, it costs an extra $19.00 for those 4 new ball studs/bolts, but next time I replace cartridges, I won't be reusing the old ball studs. I'll pony up the $19 and get new ball studs as well.
Just my experience and my .02 cents.
They even came with new clips for the ball and socket fittings!
