2002 Volkswagen Passat Hood Strut
Stabilus Hood Strut
Stabilus 3B0 823 359 D
Part Number: 7491-08033949
Notes: Hood Shock
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 :)
Great product. Great price. Easy install. I always check Parts Geek first.
A perfect fit and good quality strut. Fast service and easy installation. I'll be back!
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.
