STEP 1: Remove the striker bar from the factory hood and install it with Locktite® to your new hood.


STEP 2: Adjust hood until proper alignment with matching panels is achieved.


STEP 3: Adjust primary latch until the striker bar fi ts into the latch. Make sure when the hood is closed you can hear the striker bar “click” into the latch.


STEP 4: After you here it click, test it to be sure it’s working properly by grabbing the front edge of the hood and slowly pulling upward with steady even pressure. If the hood opens, it’s not adjusted properly; repeat STEP 3 until hood cannot be pulled open after it’s closed.


WARNING: MAKE SURE THE SAFETY CATCH IS WORKING PROPERLY!


STEP 5: To ensure the safety catch is working properly, close the hood, pull the hood release from inside the car and the hood will partially open. Slowly pull up on the hood while fi rmly shaking up and down. If it opens without pulling the safety catch lever then the latch needs to be readjusted. The safety catch prevents the hood from opening in the event the primary latch fails.


STEP 6: Locate the hood stoppers found on the radiator
support. Adjust upward until they apply a small amount of
pressure to the underside of the hood when it’s closed.
This will prevent the hood from shaking or rocking. Install
windshield washer squirters as shown in Fig. A.


STEP 7: After all adjustments have been made, reinstall the
weather stripping on the rear of the hood. You will need
to cut it so that it does not cross over top of the squirters.
Cut the factory squirter hose before the fi rst squirter
connection as shown in fi g.B. Then, run the squirter
hose through the weather stripping and connect it to the
squirter as shown in fi g.C. (You may need to bend the
squirters into position.)
