About Bonnet Gas Strutss
The bonnet is a crucial part of the car body, for beneath it is housed some of the most important components a car needs in order to run. In most cars the bonnet is the hinged cover that protects and allows access to the engine compartment. A bonnet is made up of an outer panel which is designed to be smooth and streamlined, assisting with the aerodynamics of the vehicle, contoured to match the shape of the car, and an inner panel which is strong and offers protection to the engine beneath.
The bonnet is fixed to the frame at the front of the car and, usually works with a latch mechanism and, with the action of hinges, opens outwards. The Audi bonnet gas strut is a rod which forms part of the framework of the bonnet and is used to hold the bonnet up and in place when it is open. The Audi gas struts are positioned on either side of the bonnet so that the bonnet is held in place evenly.
The Audi bonnet gas struts use a gas spring mechanism to work, which uses gas inside a cylinder, compressed by a piston, to apply force, which keeps the strut rigid and extended and able to support the weight of the bonnet while it is open.
Loss of gas is the usual cause of failure in the Audi bonnet gas strut. Damage can occur to the seal, enabling gas to leak out every time the bonnet is open, i.e. every time the bonnet gas strut opens and shuts. A faulty or broken Audi bonnet gas strut may mean that the bonnet is hard to open, won't stay open fully or just slams shut again. When replacing the bonnet gas struts on your vehicle, buying new Audi bonnet gas struts will ensure a perfect fit with the Audi bonnet and compatibility with the make and model of your car.

- In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
- The Audi R8 is made very unusually, and only 20 are rolled out of their factory on any given day. That’s because it's considered an honour to work on this model, and only the top 120 Audi employees are qualified enough.
- Audi has been responsible for many firsts in car design. One of the most impactful was the introduction of the dual-clutch gearbox, first seen in the Quattro S1 E2. Now, of course, they are commonplace.
- The word Audi is a Latin translation of the word Horch, which incidentally is where we get the word audio from!
