Q: How do I close the hood?

asked by on December 11, 2015

How do I close the hood?

After opening the hood and doing whatever you need to do, you’ll need to close the hood. To do this, disconnect the hood stand from the hood, and place it back in the hood stand latch. Then, lower the hood with your hands until it’s about a foot away from being closed, and slam it shut.

Tip

Don’t slam the hood from too high of a height, or you may damage the hood or the vehicle.
