|The dampers contain nitrogen gas and oil under pressure.|
The pressure must be relieved before disposal to prevent explosion and possible injury when scrapping.
|Always wear eye protection to avoid getting metal shavings in your eyes when the damper pressure is relieved.|
Place the damper on a level surface with its shaft extended and drill a hole of 2-3 mm (0.078-0.118 in.) diameter in the body to release the gas.
