When I bought my car the rear hatch gas struts were a bit limp. Needed lifting all the way up. Often fell of there own accord. I bought some cheap replacements and they were better, some gas assistance, but again fell occasionally.

I found some OEM Magneti Marelli gas struts at £27.99. They now positively lift the hatch from about 6 inches to open and hold faultlessly.

Anyone looking for new gas struts, buy OEM. Reasonable price and fantastic quality.

Got them off flea bay. Seller was called allcarpatrts4you2

Lists a lot of gas struts for different cars. Can't fit an active listing as yet though.
