The rear door on my 2005 Toyota Matrix no longer stays up. It got gradually worse over time but now won't stay up at all. Is there anything I can do to fix it or will I need to take it in?


Replace rear door struts. You can use a vise grip on the strut shaft to hold the door open for the time being.

Rear strut replacement

  • good answer, or a piece of wood cut to length. But replacement is the answer - they are NOT repairable.
