Bonnet Strut

There doesn't seem to be a direct replacement part for the OEM front bonnet strut. Luckily with a m8x1.25 tap a replacement struct from someplace such as McMaster-Carr and about 20 minutes of time, you can build a replacement strut for your Esprit.

What you're looking for is a strut with an 18.18“ open and 7.87” stroke. The McMaster part number is 9416K136.

You need to remove the ends from the OEM strut, then drill and tap them for m8x1.25 to accept the new strut.

Reinstall and you're done.
