Changing out a hood strut

I need some guidance on how to change out a hood strut. I got the part yesterday, but I know have a clue where to begin. I want to learn to do as much as I can on my 190E 2.3 and I am very patient. I will try and try again until I get it right.

Thanks

You first must open the hood to the complete vertical position. In this position the hood strut is on the left side hooked to the hood with an "e-clip". remove that clip & the one on the body & remove the old one(strut) & install the new one.
