You slide the billet hood clip onto the hood release bracket, after removing the stamped VW clip. There is no need to remove the whole cable , but you need to remove the VW clip (by cutting it if its not already broken).
Slide the billet hood clip onto the hood bracket where the old clip mounted such that the lower slot (NOT the 1 that the 2 mounting screws go thru) is facing passenger side. You then slide the sheathed hood clip cable thru the billet clip and let end of sheath rest against end of slot. This will hold the sheathed end of cable, while allowing the steel cable itself to slide freely and mate with the hood pull handle.
To attach the billet hood clip to the hood release bracket, tighten down the 2 set screws. They will bite into the steel hood bracket and secure the clip in place. Its not necessary to tighten them down all that far. Just enough so it wont move.
I will put up a DIY on http://www.GruvenParts.com shortly with some detailed pictures. I know it can be confusing laying upside down looking at that hood release bracket. Once you get it in, you will see it literally takes a few minutes.
Thanks again for buying our products, I think you may have motivated me to install turbo on my 92 SLC, although Ive got OBD1 so Im not sure yet what options I have…seems like turbo would be more reliable and more powerful for a track car, and also less expensive than a s/c. Need to do more searching …
