Both of mine are disintegrating at a rapid rate after a few gentle years. I've never heard about this on the forum. Common?<p>I was quoted a horrendous price to replace the pair. Time for a trip to the bone yard.<p>Trygve<br>
Re: Trunk struts - Common failure item? (RainyS60R)
Yup. One side failed just after warranty (3 yrs). Had that replaced. New one looks beefier, maybe because it is an aftermarket one. The remaining OEM is still going strong after 5 1/2 yrs, but the boot was split since 3 yrs ago. I just glued it back.<p>The front bonnet struts are definitely weakening now.
