Locating the Stabilus strut Part Number for Replacement
Gas struts come in all different sizes and are extremely common, this can make it difficult to find the right one unless you know where and what to look for.
Stabilus Gas struts have the product code and Newton Force printed on the Body. These markings can guide you in finding the correct part for replacement.
On the body of the Stabilus gas strut you will find the part number (product code) usually a 6 Character code and can be followed with a series of other digits
which denote the Force (N), the manufacturing batch and may also denote the End fitting type in some cases.
For example, in the image below we find: 083836 300N 118/20
- In this example, 083836 is the part number and that is what one should search for in the search field.
- 300N is the extension force but don't enter that in the search field: just the SIX DIGIT part number
- 118/20 is the day and year of manufacture. Again, don't enter that in the search field.
View the area marked in BLUE on the image below to find the Stabilus Part Number.
