How To Install: Audi A1 MK2 Automatic Boot Struts

Introduction: Are you tired of manually opening your Audi A1 MK2's boot every time? Upgrading to automatic boot struts can bring a touch of convenience and luxury to your daily routine. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of installing automatic boot struts in your Audi A1 MK2, so you can open your boot effortlessly.

Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Parts Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary tools and parts:

  • Automatic boot strut kit for Audi A1 MK2
  • Screwdrivers (flathead and Phillips)
  • Socket set and ratchet
  • Trim removal tool
  • Safety gloves and goggles

Step 2: Prepare Your Vehicle Start by parking your Audi A1 MK2 on a flat surface and engaging the parking brake. Open the boot and remove any items that might obstruct your workspace.

Step 3: Remove the Old Struts Using the trim removal tool, carefully remove the plastic covers on the boot strut mounts. Use the socket set to unscrew the bolts holding the old struts in place. Be sure to support the boot lid while removing the struts to prevent it from falling.

Step 4: Install the New Automatic Struts Position the new automatic struts in place of the old ones. Secure them with the bolts you removed earlier, using the socket set to tighten them. Make sure the struts are firmly attached and aligned correctly.

Step 5: Connect the Electrical Components Follow the instructions provided with your automatic boot strut kit to connect the electrical components. This usually involves connecting the struts to the boot lid’s power supply. Ensure all connections are secure and properly insulated.

Step 6: Test the Struts With everything in place, it’s time to test the new automatic boot struts. Close the boot and use the remote or boot release button to open it automatically. Ensure the boot opens and closes smoothly and the struts are functioning correctly.

Step 7: Final Adjustments and Finishing Touches Make any necessary adjustments to ensure the struts are working perfectly. Reattach the plastic covers over the strut mounts and tidy up your workspace.
