The ball socket of the tailgate strut on the passenger side broke yesterday. It was rusted out.

Acura tells me that it’s something they rarely see as needing replacement and quoted me $351 CND for replacement.

I have searched for aftermarket online but nothing yet. Wondering if this has happened to someone else.

my 2014 looks pretty bad... and I'm seeing $350 USD for the replacemnt, so CAD is a steal, especially if that's the installed price.

was it the part on the strut or the ball on the hatch side that broke?

The dealer ordered the part last week. It was part of the strut on the hatch side. Here is a pic :
