View Full Version : Hatch opening problem

01-28-2008, 06:25 PM
Hey everyone I'm having some trouble with my hatch not opening.. I already did the spring piggybacked on the original spring, and I just put in new hatch struts tonight.. The hatch releases fine, but I was under the assumption, that after it was released, it would pop right open w/o me having to touch it, is this correct? I have to pull it all the way up myself and it will stay there on its own. If not, please advise a way for me to correct this problem, Thanks!

Heat changes the behavior of the after market struts I last installed. On a cold day, they need help to open the hatch and on a very warm day they may press the hatch open all by them selves.
