  3. Release the hood prop from its retainer, located above the radiator. Securely place the hood prop into the slot on the underside of the hood.

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.

Lower the hood so that it is 30 cm (12 in) above the vehicle and release it so it fully latches. 4. Check to make sure the hood is closed. If not, repeat Steps 1–3 in the “To open the hood” section and then proceed with repeating Steps 1–4 in this section.
