Hood support rod location for servicing.

I guess you guys know about this, just a reminder, just took pictures. Now the rod will be out of my way when I change the spark plugs.

13-15 RDX have prop rods, 16+ have gas-powered struts. Wife's '12 TL has struts. Kid's '17 ILX has prop rod. All over the map, I'd say :-)

Our 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS has the gas struts and my 2012 Kia Sorento also has the gas struts. The fact ANY Acura has a prop rod past the early 2000's is sad.
