Door Struts (Rapide)


The doors of an Aston Martin stay open on their own thanks to gas struts that hold them in place. The gas struts wear out over time and need to be replaced. You’ll know when it’s time to replace them because the door won’t stay propped open. This is more obvious during the winter due to the cold weather, and functionality may return during the warmer months.

These gas door struts (AKA “door check arms”) are OEM items from Aston Martin.

These are sold as a pair. One order is needed per car.

The rear door strut was previously part number AD43-26826-AE.
