Replacing Hood Struts Tesla Model X

If your hood struts start to break for whatever reason, they can be replaced. To repair your hood struts, follow these steps:

  • To support the hood, open it and prop it up using a non-marring prop.
  • Remove the underhood apron in the rear centre.
  • Remove the underhood aprons on the LH and RH sides.
  • Release the clip on the bottom of the strut with a trim tool and pull the strut away from the attachment on the vehicle's body.
  • Release the clip on the top of the strut using a trim tool and take the strut away from the hood mount. The old strut should be removed from the car.
  • Clean the mounting places on the car, then lubricate the replacement strut's two pivot points.
  • Secure the strut's rod end to the vehicle's body, then the strut's body end to the hood. Make sure the clips are in place.
  • Remove the hood prop and double-check that the hood opens and closes properly.
  • Install the underhood aprons on the LH and RH sides.
  • Install the underhood apron in the back centre.
