Introduction

Before starting this guide there are some things you should be aware of: First make sure your vehicle is parked on a level surface with the parking brake on. This is needed for one step so you can safely put the vehicle in 1st gear so the shifter is out of the way. As far as tools go, either a 1/4" or 3/8" ratchet is fine but, the 1/4" ratchet is what I recommend. This way you're less likely to over torque the bolts.

Locate the hood latch in your vehicle. it is located on the drivers side under the dash and to the left of the parking brake pedal. Pull the latch to release your hood.
