Volvo Tailgate Strut (850 V70) - Stabilus

Sold Individually

Few things are more inconvenient than a trunk that won't stay open. Most cars come from the factory with a pressurized support that keeps the trunk lid open. With age these can often fail and they will require replacement. Always replace in pairs.

This Tailgate Strut is OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in this application, meaning this part is made by the same company that made the part for your car when it was built. Expect the same quality and fitment as the original genuine part, but at a greater savings then purchasing from the Dealer.

Strong performance during two summers and in between winter. Second winter, struts did not hold tailgate up unless it was fully up/open. When put with bottom edge of tailgate about 2' above bumper, struts could not keep tailgate in this half open state. Also when temperature fell to 20 degrees, tailgate needed manual help to get to fully open. Factory original struts performed better.

Perfect fit and function. I always feel better when I get the better parts from FCP and don't take a shortcut.

Buy them in pairs for replacement at the same time. Significantly less expensive than blue box- will report back after a few months of use to test longevity.

Both struts failed within a few days of installing them to the point that the 18 year old original struts worked better. They may be OEM but they are made in Mexico and are a different design than the original. Do not expect these to last very long. Thankfully FCP has a lifetime warranty otherwise you would end up spending more on these than genuine Volvo ones replacing them.

Great replacement for worn OEM tailgate struts that I actually used in place of some knockoffs I had bought on eBay — and didn't fit! It pays to go with the tried and true, rather than trying to save a buck or two and having it cost you more in the end. The OEM Volvo struts were a breeze to install, though I did have to finesse the mounts to get them to fit, I was done in less than 10 minutes. Thanks!

Good Product That Fits Well

A good product that fit well and was easy to install. Has stopped the rear hatch on my 1997 850 T-5 Wagon from falling down when open.

Tailgate Strut

This item swapped in very easily. Buy a pair so you replace both struts at the same time. Tailgate now lifts and holds (!!) like it did when it was a younger car. No more bonks on the head when unloading groceries.

No More Headaches

These struts snap right in and gave my sagging tailgate a new jump on life! If your tailgate is hitting you on the head, two of these and it will open right up.

Easy install, and very nice to have the tailgate hold itself open again. Disappointing that these struts don't have damping in the upward movement though, if you let go of the gate half way up it comes up violently.
