Im looking to install my hood hi-lift jack mounts this weekend and its cold out and I am lazy so I am wondering if the torx bolts that go through the top of the hood have loose nuts/plates inside the engine bay or have some form of nutserts. Reason I am asking is I still have the stock under hood heat shield and was hoping that I can do the install without having to deal with removing then reinstalling it (aka can I remove the torx bolts and reinstall them without removing the heat shield or will nuts drop out.)


Thanks in advance

All I did when I installed mine was simply unbolt torx bolts, place mounted over hinge and installed new bolts provided. There was no need to remove anything from under the hood, I did not even open the hood during installation.

That's what I was looking for. I just wasn't sure if I backed out the bolts if there would be nuts that would drop out and have to be aligned again.

Thanks!
