Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner
THE TWO REAR HATCH PISTONS NEED REPLACING . WHAT IS THE COST OF EACH ONE AND HOW BIG JOB IS IT?
What country are you in... i only ask that to point you to the right store... in the states... autozone should have them... in canada... canadian tire.
you need to safely support the door open while you do this... each end of the strut (hatch piston often called a strut) has a bolt... most i've replaced had a hex head so you'll need a special socket.... undue each each ... then attach the new one in reverse order.
A SPECIAL NOTE OF CAUSION ... those struts are gas filled and can harm you if they should suddenly expand. keep in mind the old ones may have a small charge left in them... the new ones should have a strap holding them together ... do NOT remove that untill it is secured on both ends.
It is a pretty easy job once you have that socket (if required)
Please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks
