Installing Rear Hatch Stay Assembly
I need to replace the right stay assembly(the hydraulic assist deal) on a 2003 Subaru Outback. Never done it before so I was wondering if any of you had any installation tips.
I'm thinking I'll need to unbolt the remaining stay, lift the hatch as high as it will go, install the right stay, then bolt both of them back to the hatch. Sound about right?
By the way, the reason the stay needs to be replaced is that the lower ball joint was rusted in the stay and broke. A few drops of oil now and then would have prevented the replacement of this $70 part.
