Well, to paraphrase George W.  :)

I'll try to remove that cover of the lift gate motor to check what happens.

Let us know after you do all that stuff and then end up replacing the struts. :)

Just looked at it again.

The screw drive runs continuously until the lift gate is all the way up or down.

Otherwise one could not reverse the movement in mid-air by hitting that rubber button in the lift gate handle.

I also removed that cover of the motor housing and it turns out that the motor is located way down in the rear fender and it looks like the adjustment, if there is any, is inside the motor housing.

The funny thing is, that after moving the gate several times it appears that it now opens all the way up, give or take half an inch. Go figure! 

Thanks for all the input.

My forehead is slowly healing!  B)
