Broken power rear lift gate hydraulic strut

Postby ThatsNotGoneWell » Fri Feb 22, 2019 9:15 pm

Hi there,
Has anyone had an issue with the Power lift gate where the hydraulic strut has broken at the connection point between it and the lift gate?

The piece rusted out where it connects to the hatch on the right side. Replacement parts alone are $1200 which even my dealer says is ridiculous.

Currently a 2014 SL model...and they're about to put in a 3rd transmission.
