My hatch lifts do not stay up in the cold, should I replace them?

Anyone replaced his trunk lift support already? I installed my spoiler last weekend and after that, my trunk wont stay open anymore even if i pushed it to the maximum height (the weather is cold). However, 15 mins ago, i tried it and it stays open now. I guess the weather has something to do with this. It was cold when i installed my spoiler and know when it is hot, the lift stays open (still have to push it more, but it's working). The thing is i already ordered 1 pair from Mitsubishi for $22.56/pc (before tax) and i will get it by tomorrow. Should i replace it or wait till the stock worn out? How hard s it to install? I apologize if i posted this in the wrong thread. Still a newbie here... Any reply is appreciated.... Thanks!

Mines like that as well the spoiler has more weight than the trunk alone so it depends on angles of the car for it to balance the extra weight out. Is recommend finding one that can hold more weight

I'm not sure I'm dealing with it for now untill I order a lighter trunk(carbon fiber) but I'm sure you can find something plug n play

The cold weather just compresses the gasses inside the struts more than usual. When it's a normal 60 out, it should be good. But replacement struts are cheap too, if you decide to just go new.

Take a picture of your struts that are on their now. Specifically where it attaches to the hatch. The bottom should have two 10mm bolts with phillips indentations, but the top is what you really want. I had one set that used a hex screw, another with a star bit, then others with a clip that just had to be broken off.....though an open ended wrench would have worked too....

I found this rear hatch lift support in amazon... I emailed the seller and replied that this will work with my vehicle with an aftermarket spoiler..... I didnt give it a try but who knows, they are claiming that it has added lifting pressure than OEM....

Meant for the 2011 GT, so it should be just fine considering the big ass spoiler was stock. And before you ask, I buy from them all the time, and they are legit as hell. Mitsu dealership of awesomeness, lol.

You'd probably lose the $8 in shipping, so no worries. Were you able to grab the picture I asked you for? I can tell you from there how hard/easy it will be.

It's not hard at all. It's just a little metal tab thing. you have to pull out and it should pop right out. You might need a flat head to pull off the metal tab tho. I have the same problem after I installed my spoiler.

Hmmmm..now i wonder if the OEM lift support that i ordered will hold my trunk with an aftermarket spoiler from sawtooth.... The guys from the mitsubishi parts said it will work... My GS is almost 7 years old (this coming March 2013) and i havent replaced the lift support yet. Its been a while also that my trunk will not hold until i push it all the way up when the weather is cold.

Alright... I installed the new lift support OEM and it was so easy, 5 mins for both. It works perfectly even with my aftermarket spoiler. I just open the trunk a little bit and it open by itself slowly... These only means that the old gas spring tailgate really need replacement.... Im happy.. LOL...Thanks guys for the help!!!! I post some pics.

is there a possibility where we add a stronger one that way when we pop the trunk, it raises by itself?

You could probably do a custom job with stronger ones; but the stronger you go, the harder it is to close that sucker.

This OEM will open the trunk slowly when you go above half of the opening of the trunk. And even when you open the trunk a little bit, it stays open...(even with a spoiler)

mbunds has a spectacular aura about
Lightbulb

My '06 GT stock hatch won't stay open in low temps.

It's a common problem that develops as the nitrogen in the gas springs escapes over time.

Gas-springs like these are readily-available industrial components commonly used to support machine-access covers, and can be ordered in metric or U.S. units.

They are usually less expensive when ordered from industrial suppliers rather than from the dealer, with the added benefit of having a selection of weight capacites to choose from. Just browse a catalog, match up the stroke length and the rod-end size, and select your desired assistance/holding capacity (the weight of the hatch can be "counter-balanced" by selecting a higher weight than provided by the stock units, but be cautioned that selecting too high of a weight will cause the hatch to lift without assistance, which may not be a bad thing, if you think about it.)

That would be nice if eclipse's hatch will lift without any assistance ..... i will probably get an aftermarket one next time.
