Default Broken Rear Door arm

I'm probably not the first one to break the arm which holds the rear door open. I tried shutting it on a slope and forget to unlock the arm first.

So I'll have to disconnect it but the question is, can I get one somewhere other than mortgaging my house and going to the local MM dealer ?

Maybe a wreckers is worth a try.

It's off my NX but I assume older models have the same arm set up ?

You are NOT the first. I bought mine from Amayama for $136NZD delivered about a year ago. It was going to be well over $200 from Mitzi NZ

The text says "THE STRUT DOES NOT LOCK IN ANY POSITION LIKE THE OEM UNIT". That would be a nuisance for me personally.

Has anyone on this forum used the gas strut referred to above to replace the original rear door prop? If so, how well dos it work?

Yes, good point. I just ordered one of the standard MM type for $169
