    Re: Thread for DIY mods (Trunk Lift Support Replacement)

    Items needed:
    1 Flathead Screw Driver; 2 Trunk Lift Supports
    Time: 5 (-) min

    Removing old lift support

    Use screwdriver to remove the retaining clip from the strut by lifting the clip up

    Remove the top part of the strut

    Do the same for the bottom (or you can just pull it off)

    Installing the new Trunk Lift Support

    Lift up the retaining clip (DO NOT remove) so that the ends are not in the mounting hole

    Mount top Strut to the Ball Joint (Clip should automatically slide into place)

    **If your bottom mount is facing the wrong way, just stick the screwdriver in the hole a\and rotate it until it is aligned**

    Repeat same steps for the bottom.

    Voila No more trunk lids hitting you in the head

    This is a easy DIY. I attached a pdf with pics.
