Tailgate strut replacement

Post by Sws » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:07 pm

Hi again
So, car out of warranty in June and rear tailgate strut has just failed massively :x (just drivers side I think). Have had to remove strut in order to close tailgate and definitely need a new one. Has anyone been able to source one (or know part number). Also anyone fitted. It’s easy to remove the strut itself but I can’t see where the cable connector goes to so it’s just dangling at present. Can’t see it behind rear trim panel and don’t know where or how to disconnect electrics. Any topix / advice?
Cheers

Spend a little money. Get a 1hr subscription on topix on the removal and installation steps if all isn’t clear when you remove the panels.

It should plug and go.
