Pedestrian Hood Pop Up Replacement
Hello fellow techs. The body shop replaced the four hood pyro pop-up for pedestrian protection but the shop is telling me the rear of the hood is still up.
I'm not gonna lie, I've never done one and am not sure if theres a special procedure to lower it or if any module requires replacement after deployment.. I've looked up and down alldata and cannot find any info.
I am trying to be proactive and be ready for tomorrow. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hi Gery, I've only worked on one of these systems after a hood deployment. Afterward, there was a Pedestrian Hood Pop Up warning light with no DTCs in any module.

This now concerns me since the next part that will more than likely need replacing will be the front sensor tube assembly located within the bumper. Just how airbags deploy with impact sensors, there is a specialty sensor located on the back side of the front bumper energy absorber. It is essentially a rubber tube with…
You're welcome Gery! Update us on the shops findings and if indeed they replaced that sensor which triggers the actuators to deploy.
