RE: Rear Glass Hatch Strut Removal Help

Having a difficult time removing the struts that hold the rear hatch for a Gen 2 Honda CR-V. It appears these are pop-in design instead of clipped on so need some advice.

It's easier to replace the car.... They're using a design not used anymore. There are no clips, you have to use an open ended wrench and unscrew the ball from the frame. You can then purchase an aftermarket strut that has a separate ball/screw you install then a clip holds the new strut inplace. See this thread for aftermarket struts.
