I followed the replies above to order right strut and it was spot on.
I do have more flex in my fingers, than average mechanic, so I was able to replace the strut without taking too much apart.
The plastic cover around the hatch hinges does have 2 reusable pegs. Push the center pin inside, to recover it later and with some gentle lifting the pegs come out.
The cover moves up and I did not need to fully remove it, what would require some extra work.
Now having pro-painters extendable pole made supporting the hatch very easy.
After removing the cargo hook in the ceiling, I was able to find plastic cover inside. Pulling the cover out open the access to the front bracket .
You have to look at sharp angle into the hole to see it, so get some good pillows for the cargo floor and good flashlight.
With combination of several flat screwdrivers and very long needle-nose pliers I was able to pop the strut sockets out of the balls. First the rear, then the front.
Reinstalling new one was a bit more challenging. Rear socket snapped on with 1/4" socked extension used as leveling shim and couple of screwdrivers to guide it and push the socket on the ball.
Than come the hard part. I could not get a good grip on front socket to guide it on the ball, till I figured out, that sitting on cargo floor I could lift the rear of the strut with my right hand and guide the front socket with left hand, or rather 2 fingers. Once the socket was laying down on the ball, a push with big screwdriver snapped it on.
2nd time I will need 15 minutes for the job
