Evening y'all,

Owner of a 2000 XC70, picked her up yesterday. In good condition with 178k on her, but hatch on the back isn't staying up on its own. While I appreciate the arm workout I get when loading groceries, looking to replace the hatch lift supports.

I found some videos online and was thinking of grabbing these guys:

And trying to DIY. Any words of advice or warning? New here so be gentle.

thanks everyone

dan

Call or go to their website
www.FCPeuro.com or www.FCPgroton.com
Their mid priced tailgate struts are about 1/2 that price and are good. I've bought a few pairs and they're fine and last several years

Just make sure you get the end clips on tight
