Hi, I'm Mike 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.

Open the hood and secure the hood prop. Carefully pull back on the insulation under the hood. Remove the washer line. Disconnect the single washer line that runs back toward the vehicle from the Y connector by pulling them apart.

Disconnect the retainer from the bottom of the hood and allow the hose to hang out of the way. Using a 12mm socket and ratchet remove two bolts on each side of the hood that secure the hinges to the bottom of the hood.

Remove the bolt, fold the hinge down and carefully rest the hood below the windshield line as not to crack the glass. Repeat this step on the opposite side. When the bolt's removed, fold the hinge down, rest the hood below the windshield line.

With the help of a friend raise the hood up, remove the hood support, and place your hood somewhere safe.

Reinstall the hood. Lift up on the hinge and start your bolts. Once you have two bolts started, re-secure the hood prop and finish installing your hardware.

Line up the bolts to the marks on the hinges from where they were installed before without tightening them fully. Just snug them up a little to keep the hood in place while we align the other side.

Carefully check the alignment of the hood without closing it fully. Insure that you have the same gap on both sides of the hood. After insuring that the alignment of the hood is correct finish tightening the four 12mm bolts. Reinstall the retainer for the washer line. Push the hose back onto this Y connector, and tuck you lines back under the hood insulation. Move the hood pop, close your hood and you're ready to go.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
