Putco Chrome Hood Vent

Post by ChipGall »

Hi ya'll....


I am considering replacing my black hood vent on my 2007 H3 and found the Putco chrome vent online.

Has anyone installed one of these? If so, is it simple and what is the quality like?


Any help is sincerely appreciated!!!! :)

If I remember correctly the Putco piece is a simple stick on piece, it has 2 sided tape and lays on top of your existing grey hood vent.

If you're looking for a full replacement the only option as far as I know is a stainless steel piece, I can't remember who makes it, but it is pricey.

Just buy handles from ebay. Looks way cooler.

My understanding of the Putco unit is you remove the existing vent and install the Putco unit. It has 3M automotive peel and stick tape.


The handles could be a cool alternative...dumb question but how are they installed?


I do know my H3 hasn't had the recall work performed on the vent.

The handles are bolted on, you have to drill to install.
