What does Nm mean?
It stands for Newton Meters and is a measurement of pressure.
It essentially makes your gas strut work.
Look for a N or Nm after a number on you Gas Strut…see below
I can’t find any N number on my Gas Strut?
Okay…I’m going to give you a quick and easy way to get a weight of the door so we can convert it back to Nm or the Force required to make your gas strut work
Weigh…using bathroom scales as shown below…this will work for any door (I just had this illustration drawn already)
And remember that after you have propped your boot (for safety reasons) you’ll need to remove your gas struts to get the weight of the door
