Hi, I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

So in this design the hood prop is actually on the radiator support, as you can see it goes through here then up to the hood.

We're going to start by lifting it up and then weaseling this through. You're going to guide it in, and there we go, and I've got to let the hood down for that original spot, and we're set.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
