hood pin clips


Recommended Posts

Has anyone figured out how to keep the round ring on the hood pin hold down pin? Mine keeps coming off one side and I guess will fall off someday. Warranty issue? O8 SGT

If you squeeze the metal ring so that it is "out of round" just enough, it will align itself to fit in both holes...

 

Also, you need to make the ends of the ring "overlap" just a little, so that there is enough tension to keep both of them inserted into the 2 holes in the pin itself...

 

Wish I had a picture to show you, but if you try to make the ring a perfect circle, then it will pop out every time you drive the car...

That's what I have been doing. I have owned a lot of OLD cars with hood pins and never had a problem before. Just one more problem with my NEW car.
