2002 Volkswagen Passat Hood Strut
Sachs Hood Strut
Part Number: 7491-05086036
Notes: Hood Lift Support
I bought this and it definitely opens the hood... hard. Gotta slow the hood now from the strut throwing it open so hard but hey, it works and was easy to install and it came in the mail quick
The hardest part of replacing the hood strut was removing the old strut, which involved popping loose 2 springs with a flat blade screwdriver. Installation of the new strut could have been timed with a stop watch; the ends snapped on in seconds. The hood was immediately easy to lift, and it stayed up by itself.
I dont like shopping on websites i dont know about buts parts geek was simple and the service was great i am very pleased, they helped me get the best product for car for the cheapest price would recommend :)
Hood strut order delivered quickly and packaged well. Item appeared to be of high quality, and fit and functioned as expected.
Used for the hood of my 2002 1.8 L Passat wagon. Just snapped on perfectly. Doesn't hold hood until it is about 8-inches open, but then takes over and holds nicely.
Great product. Great price. Easy install. I always check Parts Geek first.
