Default Installing new hood

Hey guys, can anyone here give me the actual step on installing a new hood? Is it just unbolting the hinges then Removing the wiper fluid hose? How do you go about removing that? Any additional steps? Thanks in advance!

You have to remove the underhood liner (be careful not rip it if you want to reuse it) to undo the wiper fluid hose. Then just unbolt the hood from the hinges. Make sure you have a second set of hands to help, don't try to do it alone. You may have to transfer the latch bar to the new hood too and you may have to fiddle with and jockey around the new hood to get it line up nice around the edges too.
