Mercedes 500SL Replacement Trunk Strut Information


Drivers expect the 500SL Mercedes trunk strut to work well or replace it promptly so they can open and close the trunk at will. Working like a shock absorber, the trunk strut consists of a hydraulic spring mechanism. It stays compressed when the trunk is latched down in place so drivers can focus on the road without having the trunk pop up suddenly and obscure their view. When it is go time, the latch is released and air mixes with the spring to create the necessary pressure raising the trunk.

When the time comes to close the trunk, the spring in the 500SL Mercedes trunk strut compresses, locking the trunk in place. Referred to as a trunk support or trunk lift, the part has to be maintained by owners of the sports roadster produced from 1980 to 1986 or replace the trunk strut promptly should they want to be able to fully access the trunk.
