If you've got an early-model Eurovan Weekender (Westfalia) with the manual H-bar pop-top lifting mechanism, this kit is for you!
When the first Eurovan Westfalia pop-tops were introduced, they included a manual-lift H-bar similar to the Vanagon. Due to the interior ergonomics of the Eurovan, raising the top this way is not the easiest thing to do. The later models moved to a hydraulic strut system that works much better.
This kit allows you to EITHER remove the H-bar and replace it with the same hydraulic shocks that came in the later models OR add these hydraulic struts in addition to the H-bar as an assist measure for heavy loads.
• (2) Hydraulic struts
• (4) Mounting brackets
• All necessary hardware
• Detailed instructions that cover BOTH installation options
