Not if they are gas charged struts, but could be replaced. Take both struts off at one end and see if that was the problem with difficulty raising the trunk lid.

SOURCE: 2007 Hyundai Sonata - Trunk is very hard to open

Is it stuck or just feel very heavy? If it is just feeling very heavy than the trunk struts need replacing. Your local part store might be helpful and install them for you if you purchase them there. If it feels like it is getting stuck on something the latch might need a little adjusting on the ring part. If this is the case then to adjust you usually loosen so it can move with little force but not too loose and open and shut trunk a few times and open one more time slowly and then tighten bolts being careful not to move latch. Hope this helps.

See if the trunk has springs or metal rods that can be adjusted, like a garage door spring. Or, if it has gas struts, see if there is a stronger strut for a Sebring with a spoiler on the deck lid. It will be stronger to lift the heavier deck lid.

One or both support struts may be defective. Disconnect them both from the trunk lid and lay the ends down into the trunk. You will need to support the trunk lid while doing this and the lid will be quite heavier. Now close the lid to latch. Did it latch first attempt? Check for the dash message. If all appears well, replace both struts.

Your rear hatch needs to be adjusted. There are two adjuster. One on right and left. They are black in color and are located just below the hatch lift support. Use the correct size torx/star screw head to adjust.
