I bought hood dampers for Vitara from Pneumatic, an Estonian company. They sent the product very quickly, and their customer service was excellent. They even had included extra pictures to help the installation even though the factory instructions were good.

Installation was a easy job, and I like the way the hood now opens and closes. Dampers could perhaps be little bit stiffer than they are because hood rises quite slowly - but sill ok - and when closing, the last 10 cm go a tiny bit too fast for my taste.

Hera are some photos after the installation.

I made some "scientific" Very Happy measurements, and the results were:

When the gap between the hood and the body is 30 cm or less the hood closes by itself.

When the gap is 45 cm or more the hood rises by itself.

Between 30 cm  and 45 cm the hood doesn't move unless helped.

I trust the dampers so much that I removed the stick Smile

Thanks for the update. I like the idea that the hood self closes. I was told some time ago not to push the hood shut but to just let it drop from a height you have suggested. Very Happy

I let it drop from about 10 cm, and then it closes nicely. From 30 cm it's too harsh for me Very Happy

I don’t know, there are no markings on the dampers about that.
