Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a hood support on this 2002 Volvo V70 and the only tool you'll need are a flat blade screw driver and something or someone to hold up the hood. The hood support is held in by clips at each end. Use a small flat blade screwdriver and pry out the clips. Obviously, you want something or someone holding up the hood while you do this. Pry the clip out, pull the lift support off and do the same thing for the lower part and just snap the new strut on.
