You'll need two people for that task, one on each side supporting the hood while removing the hinge bolts then lift off


How do I put the new one on and make sure it aligned well?


Reverse the procedure, install the bolts but leave them loose, set the hood down but do not latch it all the way, bump the hood by hand as needed to align it, then raise it just enough to tighten the front bolts, once that's done raise the hood all the way up and tighten the rear bolts. close the hood slowly and check for latch alignment
