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

To change these hood struts, you might need a second helper to help you hold the hood up. Or you can use a block of wood to keep the hood up, because that's all that's holding this hood up.

To take these off, there's a lock on the top and on the bottom. So take a flat blade screwdriver, and just open up the lock. Point it out, and just kind of slide it up at the same time. Go this way with it. There we go. Just kind of work it off, just so it kind of sits like that, and then it will come off the ball like that real easy, and do the same with the bottom. Just kind of pop that off like that.

So we have the strut. To reinstall it, clip on the bottom one first just like that. Clip on the top one. Push the lock back down. It's locked in place. This would be the same for the opposite side.
