  2. Open Driver Door

  3. Locate hood pop lever

  4. Grasp hood pop lever firmly

  5. Pull hood pop lever downwards and towards you

  6. Let go of hood pop lever

  7. Use some method of locomotion (psychic levitation preferred) to migrate to the front end of the vehicle near the location of the vehicle's hood.

  10. Grasp oil cap firmly

  11. Twist the oil cap in a counter-clockwise fashion until it is removed.

COBB Oil Cap Installation

  1. Unwrap your new COBB Oil Cap

  2. Temporarily install seal with the flat side down

  3. Test fit on car by aligning bottom of cap with the appropriate receptacle and carefully turning the cap clockwise

  4. In order to get the logo lined up the way you want, use of some shims may be necessary, place them underneath the o-ring.  Adding more shims will result in the logo being more counter-clockwise than previously.  The number of shims needed will vary.  On our test car it fit perfectly with no shims and was quite a bit off with all three.
