OEQ Trunk Strut
Part Number: W0133-1629309
Detailed Notes: 2 per car.
Ground, Overnight, 2 Day
Saved me quite a bit of money from the local [.....], who quoted me $100. Install was simple, the product works as intended, and it shipped quickly.
Fits exactly as advertised. Could not be more pleased with the ease of installation. I shall keep GEEK high on my list of suppliers
The struts are very strong in comparison to the ones I replaced. I was a little concerned because they are about 3/8" longer then the ones I took off, but they appear to operate just fine. The lid will now go up on its own and open by itself after being lifted half way.
Ordered OEQ W0133-1629309 gas trunk struts for my 1998 SLK230. Order was shipped the next day and arrived 2 days later (with standard shipping!!!) Installed - works great. As others have stated, a little longer than the OEM I replaced - but works fine.
After the trunk lid dropped on me the second time I figured that was enough. I saw partsgeek on line and gave them the info I needed for replacement struts for my 1998 SLK 230. Product was delivered quickly and the correct parts. Install took about 10 minutes. Now, no more concussions, until these wear out! Thanks for the fast service
I was tired of dodging the trunk lid when it decided to close. I ordered a pair of replacement trunk struts and was very pleased when they arrived two days later. I'd seen UTube videos of how to remove and replace the struts. I had my new struts installed in 2-3 minutes. Closing the trunk lid with the new struts seems a bit stiff right now, but everything works as it should. I wish I had ordered these parts sooner.
