Mine are from EVannex -- after two months they still fly open (almost violently fast)Has anyone had problems with these struts failing to lift after a few weeks or longer?
I replaced both frunk and trunk and they worked flawless for about a week, but now don't lift. I added a washer and it worked again for another week, but stopped again. Another washer and same story.
Just curious if it's maybe thethe springs being crap (Uxcell via Amazon). I'm using StrongArm struts from liftsupport depot.
Yep. This happened to me. “ Luckily” someone rear- ended me after it cracked, which obviously became related so had the rear window replaced.I actually just talked to a guy who had done this to his model 3, he gave a warning to be extremly careful during removal and install due to a "few" people breaking/cracking there rear window in corner next to the struts.
The amazon link you posted for $17 is that all I need for the front trunk auto-lift?
To confirm, if you have stock frunk struts and you use the spring you linked, it will get stuck in between open and closed? Or was this a slightly stronger spring that addressed it? Sorry couldn't tell exactly and wanted to verify.
It is pretty jarring at first. I got the hang of closing it with one hand, definitely easier with two hands.I’ve got the trunk springs from Evannex. They work well but I would say “violent” is the speed in which it opens. I have to tell folks to stand back. It’s a bit faster than I’d like and is difficult to close one handled or by my wife.
Because the strut is so strong that it’s default position is to stay open.... So it takes a lot of force to pull it down and keep it down to latch it.As to it being weird closing the frunk with a stronger strut, meh, just don't be a brute, you're going to latch it with two fingers, so why would you be yanking it to oblivion on the way down?
