  3. Mark the hood hinge for proper installation. Disconnect the underhood light.

  5. With an assistant, remove the open-assist rods, then remove the hinge-to-hood screws and lift the hood clear of the vehicle.

To install:

  1. Position the hood onto the hinges and loosely install the hinge screws.
  2.  
  3. Install the assist rods.
  4.
