Just been informed by my next door neighbour that my c1 rear window has shattered,the is parked in front of the house.After viewing next door neighbours security camera you can clearly see the gas strut expand and then go straight through the window.The gas strut is now solid.Anyone else experienced something similar.

The chances are that the window broke due to a glass flaw or slight damage combined with the cold weather of late. The gas strut takes quite a bit of compressing by hand. You may need to put it on the ground and push against it to compress it. When fitted to the tailgate you have mechanical advantage on it.
