Default The Matiz bootlid doesn't stay up - Lost Pressure?

Hi Guys
the canopy of the trunk of my matiz doesn't stay up. I have to hold it up till the time I am accessing my trunk ! what could be the reason?
Is there a way to get it repaired and how? Thanks.

if its the boot lid you are talking about then i guess you will have to replace the hydraulic leaver which holds the boot lid up

Yes, that's a more suited word ! The Boot Lid. Isn't there another way to fill pressure again or something?

Strangely, If you open the Boot lid more often the hydraulic levers go bad sooner than if you don't use it much.
My 800.. now about 6 years old.. perfect... Alto about 3.5years old.. lost strength.

Consider these consumables like tyres and wiper blades.
And they come at 'a dime a dozen'.
