Cleaning under the hood vents? - (2005-09)
 
What maint is anyone performing on the inner hood under the hood vents? My 07 does not look like exterior color in there, nor like a satin or flat black that I might expect. Is there a cleaning method for down in there? I read elsewhere (281?) the delicate mounts of the vent ribbing. Thx.

I remove the plastic vents to clean under them perhaps once a year. There are just four screws that tap into the plastic ribbing. If you remove and replace the screws carefully you shouldn't have any problems.

I would try to find a cleaning tool to get into the grooves and maybe underneath. Because I have heard Horror stories taking those vets on and off.

be careful
 
just had mine off and did some cleaning. just 4 screws per vent. Just be careful when removing and don't over torque them when going back on. I used a spray detailer to clean things up and things look great....good luck:biggrin:

Those bosses for the vents are brittle as hell though. Somebody said they found some billet vents but I have yet to see them.

just take them off carefully, the worst thing that happens is you end up buying a new set.

Soon as you find those billet vents, please post the link to buy them! I want a pair!

Lol, look at the cost of them! they are not worth the money for how delicate they are. DONT take them off, just find something that will get under there for cleaning. Just my 2 cents.
