    Gen IV Hood Question

    Quick question -

    Does anyone know how these vents are attached to the Gen IV hood?

    I want to remove all six vents prior to repainting, but need to know if they simply pop off if I yank hard, or if they are a pain in the @$$ to remove and then have to replace the plastic fasteners. I can't tell.

    Thanks, Drew

    There are six little plastic pop rivets on each vent. Pry those out and you should be good to go.

    Just use a trim tool and they will come right out. Replace with new on the reinstall.

    Great, thanks. Hopefully the new ones are easy to find somewhere...and not $50 each, lol.

    You're welcome

    Oh, and I'd recommend running the car and getting them nice and warm before trying to pry them off. Also, put a towel down over the engine bay to catch the clips that go flying.

    Thanks a million! Just ordered a bag and will make sure to follow your advice during removal.

    All information above makes it a lot easier. I had mine all out in about 15 minutes.

    The visor holes, I put the screws in that held the visors there. The hood holes? Nothing. Leave them open. Won't hurt anything.

    Yes, the visor holes. I'm going to do the same. I haven't ever put mine down.

    Yeah the screws will just be little caps over the holes. They don't stand out at all.

    LOL...you guys should have told me. I would have bought your visors. Just bought a new pair and put them in because the last owner had taken them out.
