Need rock guard down!

On my trailer it looks like one shock is shot and the other is not. So the bad one does not hold, and I cannot get the other one to release... so the rock guard is up there cattywampus making the trailer look derelict!

Obviously something needs replacing, but ATM Iíd just like the guard to go down!

What is the trick I cannot remember for getting the shock to release???

There is a cap on the side of the mounting hole it looks pear shaped. twisting it counter clockwise should open its locking clip , then pull it away from the mounting point. I bought a pair of tokico Y2505 gas struts. Always buy new even if one of them works. Nothing comes up on Amazon they sell a Y2507. Is it a replacement ??? Measure center of one end mounting hole to the other end center of mounting hole. to compare with the picture shown. Another brand name will work if the length is equal rated at about 25 pounds lift should work I don't know what the Y2505 is rated at but it just lifts the cover.
