I have a chevy traverse 2009. The power tailgate wont stay up on the strut. it was working fine the day before. the gate opens to the fully open position before slipping resulting in the gate closing


It's now a recall item. See below.


NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 15V415000
Component: STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 686287

Year: 2009
Make: Chevrolet
Model: Traverse
Manufactured
from: 2008-07-06
to: 2012-02-29
Recall Date: 2015-06-30
-->
Summary:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured January 3, 2007, to February 29, 2012, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured July 6, 2008, to February 29, 2012, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured September 15, 2006, to February 29, 2012, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured August 17, 2006, to March 18, 2010. The affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall.

If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on August 3, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782, and Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 15240.

I have a 2007 Suburban, and the lift gate opens up about 1/4 the way and then drops to the closed position. This happens regardless of how it's opened.


{: ) Your liftgate struts (shocks) could have gone weak. If it's a power liftgate, press the off button to disable the power liftgate function, so that you can open the liftgate manually. With a little help from you, extend the liftgate at full open position and check if it will hold itself up there as it normally should. If it starts to fall off as you catch it, that means the liftgate struts don't have enough pressure anymore to push and sustain the weight of the liftgate. Check for signs of leak on the struts, or better if you can replace it both.

The liftgate will not stay open


{: ) The liftgate struts may have become weak. Check for signs of oil leakage on the struts. Better yet, replace the two liftgate struts.

How do you remove the rear liftgate support cylinders from a 2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon?


Open rear liftgate and there are little slide clips on each end, you pull the clips then slide gas strut/support cyls off. Most new replacements come with new clips.

There is a small metal clip/retainer on each end of the struts. Remove is clip and the struts will come off very easily.

Hi, I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 'stuck' liftgate latch. It is stuck closed, so that I cannot close the liftgate. I have sprayed it with WD-40, Silicone spray, no luck. It feels like a spring...


Hi! The spring on the locking mechanism may be broken. You need to replace this spring. If you cannot find a spring for the locking mechanism then you can start putting on a similar one just as long that its powerful enough to hold the trigger on the latch. You may need pliers, spring, 12 or 14 closed / open wrench. Hope this helps and have a good one!

How do I disconnect the rear Liftgate Support Rods for a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ?


If you look at the rod end over the ball socket u will see a flat U shaped spring clip, use a small screwdriver and remove it, be sure to have the gate supported when you pull the gas lift off.
