Tailgate stays


The hydraulic tailgate stays on the boot of my 04 scenic have failed.

Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Also, any idea where I can source replacements without going to main dealers please???

Hello & Welcome to the Forums Mattyg.

It is not uncommon on the earlier Scenics.

Try ebay or a breakers, ensure you get the correct ones for your model .

My local motor factor can supply them, so perhaps one close to you can?

A word of advice - if you can't get someone to assist you when fitting, use a bit of wood (or similar) to act as a prop - the tailgates are heavy, and its an awkward job to do on your own.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
