Powered Tailgate Struts, Gen 1 vs Gen 2

Recommended Posts

I am doing a comparison of the tailgate struts for a Gen 1 facelifted Alphie and a Gen 2 Alphie both with powered tailgates.


I need the registration of a Gen 2 Alphie with a powered tailgate.


If you can help me with this, please send your registration, or VIN, to me by private message.


Thank you.

Thank you these photos.


They look identical to the Gen 1 facelift, but could be dimensionally different. I doubt that they are different.


However, it has been established that the strut units themselves are different, even the attachment parts are not.


I await a confirmation and quote from Amayama.

The Amayama parts are OEM assembly and a much more sensible cost, unsurprisingly, than the Toyota Direct ones.


It may be the hinges, or the motor, that are causing the 'juddering'..


Like many owners, the issue annoys me, but does not actually need attention.
