If the hood lifts up slightly then you may need to re-adjust the hood pins in the core support by threading up or down. Note the thin (white) plastic covering on the circular mounting plate. After the hood pin kit is properly mounted and adjusted, peel off the protective covering to reveal the chrome-plated surface underneath. Remove the cover last so you don't scratch the chrome-plate during installation.
