Hey Ladies and Gents,

I have an 2008 Outlook with a manual lift gate. I just replaced the lift cylinders on mine and it was very easy to do. Just prop the hatch open with whatever is safe since once you break the first strut free it will crash down with very painful results. When propped up the hatch needs to be at full extention.
To remove the shock or cylinder take off the retaining clips on either end and then wiggle free. A small flathead will work just fine. Back the retaining clip out about half way on the new shock and both ends and put in place pushing the retainer clips on when done and then repeat the other side.

Pretty easy and this will apply to power lift gates too.

:cheers: :beer: :blob: :drunk:
