The hood is removed when dismantling the engine, removing the cylinder head and other types of work
Before removing the hood, and in general when carrying out repairs, it is always advisable to remove the minus terminal from the battery.
Removing the hood lock and its drive
Using two "8" keys, we disconnect the fastening of the drive rod of the hood lock.
Using the “10” key, we unscrew the bolt securing the thrust shell.
Using the “12” key, we loosen the tightening of the bolt securing the thrust shell and remove the thrust from the upper panel of the radiator lining.
Using the “8” key, we unscrew the four bolts securing the lock to the cladding panel
Remove the lock and stop with a clip.
Using a 10 key, we unscrew the two bolts securing the safety hook to the hood
Remove the safety hook along with the spring.
Using sliding pliers or a “36” wrench, unscrew the pin nut
Remove the pin together with the spring and the washer.
After installing the parts in the reverse order, we adjust the lock, for which:
- after loosening the pin nut, use a slotted screwdriver to wrap or unscrew the pin, achieving a snug fit of the hood in the closed position, a clear operation of the lock and no backlash.
After that, tighten the pin nut, holding it with a screwdriver from turning.
Removing the hood
We work together with an assistant.
Opening the hood.
Holding the hood, use the “12” key to unscrew the four bolts securing the hood to the hinges.
Spring washers and regular washers are installed under the bolt heads.
Remove the hood
Install the hood, matching the hinges with traces of them on the hood.
If the hood is new, then after installation it is necessary o adjust its position in the opening.
To do this, loosen the bolts securing the hood to the hinges, lower it and set uniform gaps.
Having carefully lifted the hood, we tighten the bolts, after which we check the correct position of its position in the opening.
We carry out the adjustment with the hood lock removed.
When opening, the hood must not touch the lining of the outer bulkhead panel.
If necessary, you can change the position of the hood.
To do this, by loosening the bolts of the hood hinges to the body with the “12” key, we move the hinges within the slots.
This lowers or raises the trailing edge of the hood.
The position of the leading edge is adjustable with two threaded rubber stops on the front panel.
After installing the hood, we adjust its lock
