Removing Hood Air Extractor Vents for Cleaning

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I wanted to pop out the hood hot air extractor vents to put some of the blackening goop on them as they are a bit faded. However the vents do not seem to pop out easily. Afraid to break them so I was wondering if anyone else has removed those hood vents for proper cleaning?

Thanks,

MSB Mustang

I would suggest that you use blue painters tape, and tape off the area around the hood vents and then apply the "blackening goop", much easier and less time and you don't have to worry about damaging the vents or the paint trying to get the vents off. The tape is perfectly safe and will not leave a residue or stain. Also don't forget to tape off the vents from under the hood so that the black goop doesn't get on the engine while you are applying it. Post up some before and after pics of your hood vents. What is the blackening goop stuff that you are using on them?

Not that I've been here long - but I recommend you ignore the above ^^ suggestion.

Go buy some GREEN 3m body shop tape. Otherwise, good suggestion.

I did the tape and put on the blackout goop and now the vents look great. Still would like to figure out just how to take it out though?
I saw somewhere that there is a lightweight metal/AL replacement version for the vents.

Thanks for the tape suggestions. That solved my problem.
