I did the same thing...get the FIGS hood prop system...it will be the best investment you make for the car...make it 10x easier to do work under the hood, and a lot easier to open

Happens all the time. Get the figs kit and never worry about it again.

Mine broke as well, never cared to fix it lol. Thought about the FIGS kit =X
Have you just been letting it sit loose and rattle. lol I have a quick fix solution if that's the case.

thanks for the link I found it a couple mins ago. Looks cool as hell and nice and easy to put in for anyone. Don't know if I'm into speing $145 right now though....

Yeah... you can buy just the black plastic clip. I have the FIGS hood struts... and like them alot... but still left the stock hood prop attached to the hood.

Just buy the plastic piece... it's not that much money.

Nope. The cars ruined. Might as well drive it off a cliff.:p

I just pulled the bar out. If you push it the right direction it should just pop out of the mount in the hood. It got to be a pain in the ass and eventually I lost the rod... so I just bought the Figs kit. The cars in storage and I'm overseas right now so its not installed yet but thats first on my big list of mods when I get back. Its had rave reviews. If you do any work in your engine bay its worth it.
