My car seems to need new hood struts as the hood now will not stay up on its own, has anybody had this problem? I found replacement ones on Ebay, I was going to order a set later this week. Mine is a 2011.

I have this problem on my 2013. Seems to be common. I haven’t looked at getting replacements yet but I’m hoping to find good quality ones that won’t fail again quickly.

I too have issues with mine- more often when it it is cooler outside. Let us know how the ones on Amazon work out as I am in the market for replacements as well.

This is an easy, very satisfying fix. I'd purchase them from CAR ID and get the highest quality you can buy, as they're not that expensive. Good luck!

Greetings From Sunny SoCal - Well Today it's more like Smokey SoCal -
It is perfectly normal over the course of the lifetime of a strut, that it would eventually loose pressure and stop working. -
I purchased the Stabilus Hood Struts Part#:152663640 for my 2011 CT from the local O'Reilly's - Pretty much Plug-n-Play - Except for the need of an extra pair of hands to hold the hood up or something handy to hold the hood up. Just a couple of screws and you're done.

Definitely makes working under the hood much easier, with no hood prop to get in the way.
