2003 Nissan Murano Hatch Struts

My Hatch door does not stay open as the struts holding the door open are shot /fluid leaked out/. I need to replace them. Nissan sells them very expensive. Where can I find the hatch struts or have them replaced for a reasonable price?
Also my hatch door handle - is loose and will not lock unles I push it in. Is there a part I need to buy? Any repair shop close to Bellingham in WA?

My hatch opens but it won't stay up without me holding it

If your hatch opens by itself with a push of a button, you will have to replace the door open and close motor located in the left rear of car. If your hatch is manual, you will just have to replace the hatch struts.

The rear latch does not open easy and doesn;t stay up. Whats wrong?

There should be two hydraulic struts - one on either side of the hatch/tailgate. If these struts have failed, the hatch/talgate will not stay open. Also, since these struts are compressed when the hatch/tailgate is closed, they provide positive lifting pressure when you unlock the hatch, pushing it away slightly from the latching mechanism. Replace the struts, and you should be all set.

2005 ford freestyle hatch will not stay up can it be the hatch struts? If so can I replace them myself?

YES, most likely the struts on the rear hatch door have become weak. YES, you can replace them rather easily. you will need a flat tip srewdriver to pry the old one off and someone or something to hold the door up while snapping the new on into place on each side.

What does it mean if the struts are leaking

The hydraulic oil that is inside the strut is coming out externally meaning that the seal that contains the fluid to the inside of the strut is bad.This leads to struts not doing there job properly and will cause premature tire wear as well a decrease in vehicle handling and stability performance .The only correction is have the struts replaced.

Trunk door will not stay open by itself

Your gas struts that hold up your hatch have weakened or failed. Good news is they are easy to change and not too expensive. Usually about $20 each, but replace them both...You will need help to hold the hatch while you pop out the old ones.

2003 Kia Sedona rear door not working properly

The struts that are used to hold the hatch open are gas filled units and there is no way to repair them. The only solution is to go to an auto parts store and buy replacement struts.

Elantra Backdoor shuts closed and does not stay open.

replace the hatch struts. I'm assuming you're talking about the back hatch. There should be 1 or 2 struts (look like shock asborbers), they've probably gone bad.

2004 Nissan Murano Rear Hatch Struts

I would assume your talking about the small hatch shocks right? If thats the case try your local auto store, napa, autozone, pepboys etc. they sell for about 20 each there and just go by the size of the old ones.
