Hello everyone. I hope everybody is doing well and keeping safe. Been a long time since I posted on the forum.

My rear trunk struts are needing to be replaced as I noticed that opening the trunk is becoming heavier.

Im currently searching amazon for a replacement but can only find the ones for R170 or R171.

Can I use the ones for R171? Would it be a compatible replacement?

Thank you.

Easy job. @greenmanslk
Do one side at a time.
The R171 has a plug in the hinge that needs to be removed so that the boot can fully open to make it easier.

Done a few in my time on R170s and R171s. I think the 172 is the same.

171 diys:
