    Installed it this evening. The instructions from the vendor are in the form of a JPEG on the Ebay listing. It wasn't that difficult to figure out and I am more than pleased with them overall.

    Yes. I need to resize and upload. I only did the final picture as the installation pic on eBay was pretty well spot on.

    Here you go, Madge strutting her stuff. I really do like the way the hood lifts by itself now as well as the increased opening space. It's also just aesthetically pleasing.

    I did manage to very easily knock the OEM rod out of the way as I was installing the struts. Thankfully I had one strut in place already to keep the hood from crashing down on me. On my Honda, I found the rod would sit in firmly in a socket but on the CX-5 it just seems to sit in a indentation loosely and thereby is very easy to knock out of the way.

    That OEM rod wouldn't be so easy to knock loose if it was supporting the whole weight of the hood.
    But for my money, the struts are a great addition.
