They can't be fixed, but you can replace them. Always in pairs. All you need is a small screwdriver and a helper to hold up the hatch to replace. They are called Lift Support Cylinders. $20 a piece at most auto parts stores.

3 out of 3 people think this is helpful.

or just get a pair of vice grips and leave them in the back- grab the rod right under the shock- you will hit your head when you unclamp it tho- OK, Tom is right, just go get new ones-
