ok, i feel lame for asking, but i figured i'd rather be safe than sorry.

so i got my car back from the bodyshop friday. i noticed that the hood vents aren't all the way back into their slots. there's one tab on each side that's still sticking out... do i just force it back in, or is there a trick to it? can it break or scratch or anything?

check the mounting screws

They put them back in without putting the tabs underneath the metal edge. Happened to me when I put my vents back in the other day ;). You'll have to remove them completely to put them back in properly.

ok, so they're just screwed on? i can just unscrew them and pop em back in?

haha, i was going to say it's 5/16ths :)

one of my bolts is being really annoying. i want to take the vent cover off, but when you turn the nut the bolt turns as well, so it doesn't unthread, any ideas on how to solve it? :(

hmm, keeps twisting out of my grasp...ohh well, i'll just keep trying :)

Use vice grips, just not on the threaded portion do it on the part of the shaft after the threads. I have done it many times at my metal fab job, works like a charm.
