Fits years: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004

All Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale Tools required:

  • Flathead screwdriver (small)

Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

Be sure to support it with something like a broomstick or an assistant if BOTH struts are failing.

NOTE: We always recommend replacing BOTH struts if one of them is beginning to fail, as they often will require replacement within weeks of each other!

Step 2: Using the flathead screwdriver, pry the retaining clip that secures the strut to the hood DOWN. Once it is pried free, you can disengage the strut from the hood.

Step 3: Pry and remove the clip that secures the strut to the vehicle chassis.

Step 4: You can now remove the strut from the vehicle.

Step 5: To mount the new support strut, simply "snap" each end in place.

NOTE: Remember, the thicker end of the strut attaches to the hood!

Step 6: Repeat this process for the other side.
