EAS CF Hood Vents Install

Can anyone point me to any write-up/advice on this? I know it's extremely straightforward and I've completed more complex mods, but anything involving "snapping out" a part next to the actual finish/clearcote on the car is always worth some insights before diving in.

Thanks - and yes I did search around the forum and couldn't find anything.

Best,

B

I did it last night - Pretty easy. You'll see everything when you take off the rubber grommet under the hood.

Then press it down into the hole in the hood until all of the tabs lock in place. Reinstall the grommet and repeat on the other side.

Just be careful releasing the tab so you dont snap any off.
