REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

  1. Raise the hood.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect any electrical or fluid lines between the hood and the body.
  4.  
  5. Scribe marks around the hinges to facilitate hood installation. Have a helper support the hood so it doesn't damage the body during removal.
  6.  
  7. Remove the hinge-to-hood bolts on each side and lift the hood clear of the vehicle.
  8.  

The hood can be easily damaged; take great care not to bend or dimple the hood. Store it on pads and cover it to protect it while off the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the hood and install the bolts just tight enough to hold it in position.
  2.  
  3. Lower the hood and check the alignment; the gap should be even all around.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the bolts.
  6.  
  7. Attach any electrical connections or fluid lines which were removed.
