Power Liftgate Shuts Down

Power lift gate opens a bit then get down automatically.
It will not open full and gets close after few seconds.
You can say its working but not properly.The problem noticed on 2007 GM Yukon.


The liftgate won't stay open by itself .


WHY THE LIFTGATE IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY?

First of all i will say,this problem is very common and noticed by Many others too.

This is typical of a failed lift gate strut. These gas charged struts are designed to take the weight of opening and closing the lift gate. If one fails, the weight of the liftgate is too much and the power opener cannot open it all the way with out overloading and reversing to protect itself. By time this Lift gate struts gets weak and starts under performing.

HOW CAN I GET THIS FAULT CONFIRMED?


There is a simple test procedure.
TO test, you open it manually and see if it will stay open, If no then replace the liftgate struts.

ARE THIS COSTLY PARTS TO BE REPLACED?


NO,this are not very costly part.Please buy branded parts for more better performance and long lasting parts.
IT is likely one that is out, but since the struts are not expensive, about $45 each. Part numbers are left, 15827433 and right, 15854712.

CAN I REPLACE LIFT GATE STRUTS MY SELF?

  • IS IT EASY JOB FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF?



Yes its not very hard or difficult job for newbie.Just do it carefully.
The metal clip on the end you move with a small screw driver and the end pops off. If you use a broom or assistant to hold the door open it is much easier.It hardly takes few minutes to complete this lift gate replacing task.The clip on the end you pry down and out, then it pops off, just be sure to support the door.


This details will help.
Thanks.
