I just bought a 1995 Silverado Z71 Extended Cab with matching Leer cap and
the pneumatic arms that hold the glass door up on the back of the cap are
worn out and I need to replace them.I went to the Leer website and all I
got was directions to a dealer 2 hours away and they are not open
weekends.Also done a google with no luck.Anyone know a place to order parts
and installation instructions on the web or should I just bite the bullet
and miss a days pay.Also the tailgate opened hard so I sprayed wd-40 into
the tailgate and into the handle and it works great now.Is there anything
else I should do to keep the tailgate working good.I live in the Maine woods
so salt and rust are a big problem.Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
I wouldn't think they are anything special (though I could be wrong.) Have
you tried the local auto parts store. They usually have a selection of
these. Length is the most important thing. Take one off and show it to the
guy at the counter. They should just be held on by pins on each end.
That's how the ones on the Leonard cap I own are anyways...
You can get those arms anywhere, they just can't look them up in the
computer. When the store asks what vehicle just tell them they are for a
cap and when I did they let me go behind the counter and look for matching
ones for mine.
Thanks for the info about the arms.They are carried by most parts
stores.Guess I should have checked them first.Thought they were made only by
Is there anything else I should do to keep my tailgate opening easy
besides spraying WD-40 into it??
