Product Description

Does your hatch not latch correctly causing the infamous "Hatch Rattle"? LRS has you covered with this direct replacement striker that includes the plastic striker bushing. The bushing is what normally wears out on the striker which causes the latch to have excessive play and thus the hatch starts to rattle when you hit bumps.

  Just what it needed!
By on 9/8/2014
The part seemed a little pricey, until you consider the price of OEM replacements and the fact that this totally solved my issue. Before I installed this striker, I had to slam my hatch shut several times before it would grab the post. Now, I can close the hatch gently and it grabs on the first try. Awesome product. Thanks LMR!

I used to have to slam the hatchback closed a couple times for it to lock. Now I just drop it from 2 inches away and it locks...awesome
