    Before considering replacement of the struts, this advice from Ant bears constant repeating:

    "Firstly, you must raise the front of the roof first, if you don't it tends to pinch and becomes very hard to push up. Reverse the process when lowering, ie back down first, otherwise you'll pinch the rubbers at the rear.
    Secondly, having got it up clean and polish the now exposed solid sides outside, you'll be amazed the difference it makes to the lifting effort if you keep those sides highly polished. They may look quite shiny but still polish them so they're slippery!
    Lastly, put some oil on the struts once in a while it keeps them sealed."

    If after this you do opt for replacement, SGS Engineering have been recommended by other members on here. I haven't tried them - Ant's method worked for me.
