Bonnet struts

The plastic peice that hinges the bonnet prop on my civic has broken. As such I thought of replacing it with struts/dampers like those on the tailgate. Does anyone know a set that may fit the FK civics?

I've always thought that bit looked a little fragile.

I've looked in the past, but the closest I have found is one for the spanish FG? Saloon; If you find one I'd love to know.

My bonnet strut is the worst I've ever known. That plastic insert comes out for fun putting me in danger of getting bonnet slapped. Ive reported it to dealer on service. When i collected her they reported no fault found ..... my ar/e. Soon as I checked it was all over the place until it fell out. Got mechanic to come out with face like a slapped bulldog. Tried to make me feel it was all in my mind. Any ideas on a life long fix would be interesting.
