canopy spring broken looking for cross ref part

Postby katanajer » Wed Jan 17, 2018 12:17 am

Hi guys,

my canopy assist spring broke and I'm looking for the same part where I don't have to go through Diamond.

the part number is 20-5600-09-02. does anyone know where they got this part from?

Thanks,

katana jer

When one of our springs broke a few years back, I ordered replacements directly from Diamond. Unlike most of the Diamond-unique parts, I did not find these springs to be overpriced. That may have changed though.

I think the same springs may also be used on the C1, so they might be available from one of the Diamond dealers in the lower 48. Certainly would save the international shipping charges.

Hi Jerry,

I believe I was able to source them directly when one of mine broke a few years ago. I'll look it up next time I get to my hangar. If I remember correctly, the A1 and C1 use the same spring.

did the spring break in the air? My springs are wrapped with foam however about 1" of the top and bottom of the springs are still exposed. I'm curious if I should put a longer piece of foam around the canopy springs.
