    MPX Hood Support Lift Kit

    I installed the MPX Hood Support Lift Kit last Fall. These are sold by a number of vendors in the $110-140 price range. It's rather nice to have the hood hold itself up when tinkering.

    Unfortunately, the kit includes cheap parts and I pulled it today. The struts are your typical $15 Chinese parts, which function OK, except the cheap ends strip out under normal vibration. Both the nuts and threaded ends are of soft metal. Installed as shown in the instructions, the left strut interferes with hood, causing it to bow outward about 3/8" at the rear when closed. It might work if the strut is reversed at the top (bolt facing left instead of right) but I'm not sure it's worth spending another $40 for ends.

    I'd suggest saving your money for something that works.

    I didn't buy the MPX ones but love the ones I got. Think it was from some Fiat vendor on ebay. Loved that they were black struts instead of the chrome.

    Sorry to hear you had issues. We have had ours on our Abarth for years and never had an issue. However, the top of the strut should be on the inside of the bracket with the smaller end. The bottom of the strut should be on the outside of the bracket with the larger end. No bulge on the hood and work great. Since you just bought them last fall, they would be under warranty. If you need new ends, let me know and I’m sure I can help you. I would just need your original order info (regardless of where you bought them from)
