trunk spring problem

my 2019 trunk will not stay open if parked uphill. Anyone else? Anyone gotten a solution (like stronger torsion springs or some sort of spring assist)?

thanks ..

I agree, it's a POS! And I've bumped my noggin on it several times in the last 2 years. Unfortunately, mine is already set to the highest torque setting for the 2 torsion rods that (sort of) counterbalance it.

2019 Clarity Trunk Hood Springs Weak

I finally got fed up with the trunk hitting me in the head! I've made an appt with local honda dealer to replace current torsion bars with heavier ones that come with the trunk spoiler accessory. Going to cost me upwards of $100. I would have liked to find some hardware store springs that I could attach to help with the lifting - I'm sure there's a way.

I removed 4 trunk lid panels from the inside and the reduced weight seems to be perfect on an incline.

That's great! Can you provide the part numbers off the invoice when you have it done at the dealership?
