Default Re: Hood Prop

Quite a coincidence. I just finished changing the hood (bonnet) prop on my Sprinter this afternoon.
I had to replace mine after someone not familiar with how to close the hood forced the hood closed without releasing the prop. It was a mangled mess. I managed to kind of straighten it so I could access under the hood.
Got the new prop, then primed and painted it.
Install the top hinge point first - place the spring over the pin, inserting the end of the spring into the hole on the mount, then onto the prop. The clip slides over the pin and locks into place. Finish up the bottom and reinstall the washer bottle.
