Tesla Roadster

Trunk Lid Struts

Gas Struts will not last forever.

In a Roadster, a properly functioning release strut should raise the trunk lid all the way when the actuator button is depressed.

We find the majority of Roadsters we service, still have the original struts from 2008-2011, and since this item has a 7 year service life, they all need to be replaced, and often will not even hold up the trunk lid half way.

This product is a direct replacement for both 1.5 and 2.x Roadsters, and will provide years of service.  Installation is relatively simple and DIY.

The Tesla Part Number for these is 2003740.  (SOLD AS A SET OF TWO)
