Hood and rear hatch want stay up automatically

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Mark Grignon

This vehicle is equipped with the hood lift supports (pictured). They look like miniature shocks. These wear out over time and loose their resistance. They can be purchased for around $30 each. Prop the vehicles hood up and remove one at a time. When removed, test it to verify that there is resistance. If it moves freely, then it's wore out, replace. Same for the rear hatch.
