Default under hood insulation

Hi anybody know the way to take off the clips that hold the insulation under the engine hood. Do they just pull out ? thanks[:I]

They have 2 small pop-out clips that pop-out when the things gets pushed IN to the hole. Use a small small set of needle nose pliers and you can grab both pop-outs, pinch them, and the clip falls right out.

You can also use a small screwdriver and do one side at a time. Its a pain.

Good luck.

Just be careful that you don't slip and have the screwdriver go through the hole, you'll ding the hood from the underside.[xx(]

You might think about covering the engine with a blanket or something just in case they get away from you.. You can get new ones from the dealer but I seem to remember everyone saying they are alittle on the high side pricewise, for what you get.. Just be careful because they will break

I paid [xx(] almost as much for a few of them as I did for my new nozzles. Must be made out of "Gold plated Titanium" or something!!!

Sean is right. I use needle nose to grab the flat part and pull, while sticking a small screwdriver under - trouble is, 80% of the time the clip isn't where you're pushing, so you rotate a bit and try again. You can't see the clips. Pain. [xx(]

When I painted my washer nozzles I screwed the first one up getting under the hood insulation. I purchased new ones from advanced Auto for about $2.00

Gonzo,

I tried several types of generic clips from Advance Auto, but couldn't find any that worked right. Do you remember the type of clips or the part number of those that you got that worked?

Go to a auto paint supply type store. I got 25 for like $10. I kept a spare set for me and gave the rest away to some of my club members. How cheap can they be for not painting the underside of the hood where the liner is. On my other car, it shines under there like the rest of the car [|)]
