This is the Mercedes solution to the 404 Hood props. Originally the 404 was produced with a prop on the drivers side edge of the hood. This has a tendency to cause the hood "wing" to crease and deform. We recently received a limited number of original updated hood props. This is a MUCH better design. It also acts as a hood catch not allowing the hood to over extend against the cowl. Installation should take less than 15 minutes. Pictured is the old style prop, and the new style prop.
This hood prop is a great alternative to the stock 404 hood prop. I don't have to worry about my hood trying to fold every time I open it now.
