Laguna 1 rear hatch struts failing
Has anyone suffered from these failing?
I've had my 2000 1.6RT since new and it's done 74k.
However, I've replaced 3 struts because they have jammed.
Then at the weekend as I opened the tailgate I felt it go heavy and thought another one had gone. However, this time the plastic knuckle had snapped, the strut was OK. Fortunately i'd saved the ones from the old struts so it was a two minute fix at no cost!
It does seem excessive though at £30 each from the main dealer.
