All attempts by me to lubricate struts had failed so spoke with local dealer about replacements. They said it was a known issue and agreed to see what Volvo could do.

MY20 T4 Inscription Pro (out of warranty) - just had tailgate struts replaced at no cost by local dealer. Very pleased as indicated cost was in the £900 region.

I have this same issue on my right tailgate strut. My car has the electronic tailgate.

Volvo wanting £160 diagnosis fee and no indication of a gesture of goodwill.

I have found replacement strut online but my question is will my car recognise the new strut if I replace myself? I know the onboard computer does have software updates and I didn't know if a new strut would work after a straight forward replacement.
