Hello . . ..Hi all, I got too vigorous in trying to close my liftgate and broke the driver side power actuator off at the connector. Anyone have a guide on how to replace the actuator, I have a new one ordered but can't find instructions anywhere?
The only thing I can offer is a pretty good video on how to replace it on a Chevrolet Equinox.
The way these hydraulic lift gate power struts operate has not changed much since this video and pretty much the same across all GM brands and quite a few years.
So, the removal of panels may be similar also, but perhaps not as complicated as the video.
There is a recalibrate procedure I beleive that also much be done after the replacement, and their is a way to do that. Perhaps search for a related video on a Traverse, Buick Enclave or GMC Terrain.
