5. Pull the sides of the hood out away from the side panel fasteners. 

6. Lift the hood up and away from the vehicle. Note: Disconnect the wiring when removing the hood.

7. To install the grill insert accent light, disconnect the grill lights lead and the grill lights adapter pigtail from the module.
