Has anyone else had a problem with resistance to closing on the hatch of the 5-door Mazda 6? I lost all resistance in the hatch door this weekend. It won't stay open anymore.

Sounds like the lifters are malfuncting.

yeah, it happened to me. that damn hatch is heavy as hell! i had to wait a few weeks before i could get it in.

what happens is the seal on the hatch strut springs a leak, all the fluid comes out (check around the frame of the hatch opening and you may see some of it), and it loses pressure=no worky. my dealer fixed it under warranty so check with yours. iirc, the part is only like $20 and it attaches via a few bolts. good luck!
