3 steps of installation

Step nr 1

Installation of lower bracket

Hood dampers are installed according to manual and there is no need for extra holes. Bracket is installed to vehicle's body. The lower bracket is installed to more stiff part of the vehicle under the hood in order to avoid any deformation during opening process of the hood. For the installation you will need a wrench

Step nr 2

Installation of upper bracket

Upper bracket is installed to the hood. The location for installing the upper bracket depends on every car make and model, that is why each hood damper is unique and suitable for a certain car model. For the installation you will need a wrench

Step nr 3

Installing hood dampers

Pivot joints are fixed to the brackets. Springs are mounted onto joints. Before first use you should "pump" the spings. Push on a gas spring and you force the piston rod and piston into the cylinder and this compresses the gas. Stop pressing and let go and the pressure of the gas pushes the piston back out again. Repeat for several times. During the "pumping" be careful as spring can slip out and injur. After installing the brackets and springs, check if no instrument is left in the hood area. Slightly lower the hood and check if nothing prevent the hood from fluent closing
