Default tired of having your trunk lid coming down suddenly?

after ruining my best suit jacket and almost doing the same to my black suede Mercedes coat and getting nailed in the head a few times I replaced my trunk struts. Now the lid will hold at any position, no more bumps on the head. easy to replace and cost around 50 bucks online for both.

just pry the metal spring clips back just enough to remove the struts. you don't need to remove it. I used an awl in the middle of the metal clip, between the clip and the strut.
