  • Ratchet
  • 7mm socket


Step 1

Remove OBDII connector. There are 2 screws holding it on – use your 7mm socket.

Step 2

Remove 5 screws. These all also require the 7mm socket.

Step 3

Remove hood release handle. I haven’t actually removed this personally – I didn’t need to for what I was doing. It appears to just be a few more 7mm screws holding it on, though.


Installation is the reverse of removal.
