    Mine have shown some signs of leakage, so I guess they do wear out eventually. I think they're cheap & easy enough to replace though, I'm sure I heard £14 each, or a pair, not quite sure which.

    Mine went about a year ago. Replaced the struts myself (and I'm not mechanically minded). Just make sure you prop the hatch fully open when you do so ). £51 from VX.

    It's not unusual.

    there are universal ones available on ebay, not sure of price, you will just have to measure the length of yours. worth saving a few bob this time of year if possible.
