Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To pop the hood, we're going to grab this little handle right here, right next to your foot rest. To release the hood, we're going to slide this little lock to the right. Prop rod is right here. Pull up on that, and there's two spots. You can either put it right there, or if you can't reach that spot, you can put it right here.

We're going to take these nine pushpins out on this upper cover. Use a flat-blade screwdriver. Just pry up on the center, and then the rest of the clip will pop out. Sometimes they come out easy. Sometimes it's a struggle, like this one. The center came out, which is okay.

Now we're going to move this air intake. Then we can pull up on this panel.

Now we can put this cover back on. Line that up. We're going to line this air intake up. Pushpins, stick those in. Push them down. Lock them down.

Okay, now we're going to close the hood.
