To close the hood:

  1. Before closing the hood, be sure all the filler caps are properly installed.
  2. Lift the hood to relieve pressure on the hood prop. Remove the hood prop from the slot on the underside of the hood and return the prop to its retainer. The prop rod must click into place when returning it to the retainer to prevent hood damage.
