The Hidden Hood Strut Kit for the VW MK2 Golf/Jetta, lets you seamlessly install gas shocks without visible mounts on your fenders or hood. Our simple and sleek design hides the shock assembly within the cowl for a completely hidden look. The Fabless hinges in the kit will be the only visible clue, along with the prop rod that’s no longer in use.
The Hinges and Lower Shock Mounts are zinc plated for corrosion protection. They can be installed as is or lightly scuff and paint the colour of your choice.

*Note: Not compatible with original UK MK2's as they don't come with the hinge hook or the lower hook catch. The lower hook catch must be present to install this product.
Some European MK2's also do not have the lower hood catch. Please confirm before purchase, it is needed to install the product.
The P-Clamps and Rivets are used to attach your washer fluid hose to the Fabless Hinges. The rivet attaches to a small hole on each hinge.
Ensure you have a good grip on the hood during opening and closing as the struts will pull up during opening and will pull down during closing.
