W202 trunk hinge repair kit c230 c280 c36 c43

Hi folks, I have been working with a friend to develop this trunk hinge repair kit that is the quick and easy way to fix the broken spring mount that snaps off and makes the trunk no longer open on it's own and causing the trunk to slam shut. There is no welding necessary with this kit and I've been using mine for several months now and it works perfectly.

You need this kit if your trunk no longer opens because the piece where the spring connects broke off. This has nothing to do with broken locks, vacuum lines, etc. Please ask if you have any questions.

This can be done by anyone and you will probably only need a flat head screwdriver, pliers and some eye protection.
The kit comes with detailed instructions.

This is $28 on eBay but offered here for $22 for a set of two, free shipping in the US. Send me a PM for ordering info via PayPal, I probably won't see your replies posted here.
