Boot lid opening

Recommended Posts

Hi all

My Fiesta is a Mk8 and I appear to have a problem with the boot lid opening. Once it is unlocked I lift it about half way open, let go, and it stays there. Gas struts don't appear to want to open it any further. I have to manually lift it the rest of the way. I have knocked the two hinge pins from side to side to remove the paint from them and lubricated the pins. All to no affect. As the car is only 7 months old and has been like it from new I would not have thought the gas struts would be the cause. Have any of you any further thoughts on the subject before I head to my local Ford dealer to see what excuses they can come up with.

Hi

My brother has just got a mk8 Fiesta and we’ve noticed that the boot doesn’t open properly. I don’t know what to do about it. If you do go to the dealer post back what they say please.

Hi BJT

Took it to the dealer this morning. Agreed not right and rechecked hinges, OK. Has ordered new gas struts. Hope that will cure it.
