I was cleaning my Sonata today and noticed something odd with the trunk
lift cylinders. The left cylinder on my car has a plastic shroud over
the bottom of the cylinder to protect the rod where it exits the body of
the gas cylinder (the cylinders are mounted "upside down" with the main
body on top and the rod coming out the bottom). However, the cylinder
on the right side has no such protect shroud, even though the mounting
stud has a groove just like the left side for the shroud to snap into.
Anyone else with an 06 notice this?
Hyundaitech, any idea of this is by design or did they just miss mine
during assembly? The only reason I can see to have it on the left and
not the right is that the left side has the wiring coming up beside the
cylinder so maybe this is to protect the wiring from getting pinched.
