THe Trunk door wont stay Open

Hello All folks,
I have a 2012 LR2 HSE with ~80k miles on it. Love that thing.
We took it for internal detailing and when we picked it up the trunk door wont stay open. We can open it (it lifts up), but then it just swings down and closes.Someone has to hold it while the other person take out / put in stuff.
Having 2 little kiddos keeping stroller in and out are the biggest issue.
Would really appreciate if I can get a solution. A mechanic said there is a button you need to push in the inside and it will do the trick.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

While I don't have a LR2, which means I'm probably opening myself to insult, it was my thought they had normal tailgate struts, and if that's the case, they probably need to be replaced?

Thumbs up

Try Tuff Support Tailgate supports, I just replaced mine on a 2008 LR2:

I tried to link you to the exact items but my post count is too low, search Amazon for this:

2 Pieces (SET) Tuff Support Rear Liftgate Lift Supports 2008 To 2013 Land Rover Freelander / LR2 Lift Support

Youtube has a video on how to remove and replace, extremely easy takes 3 - 5 minutes.
