Re: Grand Scenic III - tailgate height increase?
Hi there and welcome.
TBH, if you asked a renault dealership, they would most likely say not, but I strongly suspect, if you removed one of the struts and took it to a motor factors, they could provide a part that would have the same fittings and offer a bit more lifting force.
However, you do run the risk of the tailgate fouling the roof if this increased height increases the angle to such an extent.
Plus, in a few years I can envisage the person who buys your car, complaining that they need to stand on a box to pull the tailgate closed...
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
