  post locked   Rear Hatch won't stay up  

Hyundai Santa Fe 2012 LTD
Around 70k km

recently, my rear hatch decided it had enough and closed itself on my wife's head (ouchie...). The struts looked like they were done so I ordered some on Rock Auto (Monroe brand struts) and changed them myself, which was very easy to do, took about 5 minutes.

Lo and behold, it still didn't stay up for some reason... Now I thought maybe the cold weather broke the original ones, but it's now -4 celsius outside, not that cold, and the new ones still aren't working.

Is there another reason why the hatch wouldn't stay up? Did I receive some broken parts? Are the new ones not the good model, or not strong enough?

Model number of the Monroe struts is 900218.

It can't be much else beside the struts.

Turns out the model is the wrong one. I received the one for the hood instead of the hatch, so of course they are not strong enough to support the hatch door.
I'll have to order new ones...

At least you know what the problem is now.

Closing this now.
