High voltage cables may be exposed when removing the under-hood covers. Tampering with the high voltage system can cause severe burns or electric shock, which may result in serious injury or death. High voltage cables and connectors are colored orange for identification purposes.

To remove the under-hood covers:

  1. Unscrew the turnbuckle clips (1) counter-clockwise and remove the upper cover.

  2. Press the three clips in and remove the coolant and brake fluid reservoir covers.


    Access the three clips via the three holes located below the covers.

  3. Gently pull the side covers, as illustrated, to release it from the luggage compartment.

  4. Lift and rotate the side covers clockwise to access the fuse box.


To prevent damage when moving the side covers, pay close attention to the position where the hood strut passes through the cover.
