The Hood Inner Panel

Step 01

Retrieve your Hood assembly from the previous pack. Fit the four holes of the Hood Inner Panel over the matching posts on the underside of the Hood, as shown:

Secure the panel to the Hood with four (4) GM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 02

Fit the Left Hood Catch to this location on the underside of the Hood, and secure it into place with one (1) IM screw, as shown.

The Hood Catches are marked ‘L’ and ‘R’ for easy identification:

Step 03

Similarly, fit the Right Hood Catch to this location on the underside of the Hood, and secure it into place with one (1) IM screw, as shown:

Step 04

Fit the Magnet to this location on the underside of the Hood, as shown.

This Magnet can fit either way, but will only ‘work’ if installed with the correct polarity. Hold the Magnet into the recess, then use your Door Opening Tool (supplied with Pack 77) on the outer side. If it sticks as you see below, the Magnet polarity is correct. If the tool resists this Magnet, flip it over:

The correct Magnet polarity will hold the Door Opening Tool in place, as seen here:

Fit the Center Hood Catch over the Magnet and secure it to the Hood with one (1) GM screw:

Thoughts


The instructions don’t say anything about this Magnet polarity and having it backwards would mean you won’t be able to open the hood. Better to fix that problem right now! Other than that, this pack was fairly straightforward.
