I went to open the back of my Leaf the other day only to discover that both struts for the hatch had completely failed. There was zero warning and I hadn't done anything unusual to damage either one. The struts had been working just fine up until that point (no slow closing or difficultly opening and closing the hatch). Needless to say I discovered just how heavy the hatch was.
Any recommendations on replacement struts? Also, anything I should know in order to keep this from happening in the future?
