I replaced mine using the 3M 77 spray adnesive. It isn't a real fun job. If you do it yourself, be sure that the hood is completely free of grease and oil, which means wiping it down with gasoline or a similar solvent the next day after gunking and water spraying it after scraping all the loose crap off. Good time to clean your engine too as it will get wet. Mask everything when spraying the 77 as it is messy. Have tick marks on the hood and pad to help you align the pad as it must be done perfectly. Another pair of capable hands is invaluable.
