PROTECTION OF THE VEHICLE
Always be sure to cover fenders, seats, and floor areas before starting work.
The support rod must be inserted into the hole near the edge of the hood whenever you inspect the engine compartment to prevent the hood from falling and causing possible injury.
Make sure that the support rod has been released prior to closing the hood. Always check to be sure the hood is firmly latched before driving the vehicle.
