Default hood prop

Went and had the oil changed and in the process they shut the hood and bent the prop. So how do I take it off ?

You have to pry it out of the grommet. What I do is grease the end of the prop rod then pull and twist. If you have to rig up a pry tool, use something that won't scratch the finish.




And then consider buying a set of hydraulic hood struts. It's a good way to ensure some young technician doesn't destroy your hood with the prop. Here's a link:
