Place the hood vents back where they came from.
When you put the hood vents back on, fit them in at the front before you push down to clip them in. This will avoid them sticking up.
Test new mod!
After removing the hood vents a dozen times, I've noticed them sticking up a bit on the corners. If you have this problem, there is a simple fix, but it may require a screwdriver or knife.
There are 2 metal clips on the back of each vent that need to be adjusted.
In the center of each metal clip, and on each side, there is a center piece of metal that needs to be bent out just a little
and may need to be pushed down to snug up the connection.
Take a small flat head screwdriver and place the tip behind the center metal piece and gently bend it back out.
You only want to do this just a little bit, that's all she needs.
You will bend a total 4 clips (2 on each vent).
and for anyone who does this mod without the rubbers, I drove in this for an hour
and this is how the engine bay looked
water only got on the box, so really there isn't much to worry about.
