    I am trying to locate the small struts located in the glove and console doors for a 348. If anyone has advice it would be greatly appreciated.

    They are all available OEM (same part but without the horsey) from Sachs North America. Go to: www.sachsna.com

    Get the part number off the online catalog and call them for the number of your local distributor. For what it's worth, I wouldn't bother replacing the small dashboard shocks as they don't hold the lid up anyway, but dampen it from slamming down. Just my opinion though.

    Good luck,

    I agree. A new one won't even hold it up.

    From the Sachs catalog (page 12):

    SG437007 is used in the bonnet and engine lid
    SG437006 is used for the console
    SG437001 is used for the glove box
