You should get another person to help you, but it is very easy. Just have your helper on one side of the hood and remove the bolts that hold the hood to the support brackets on each side. Careful the hood does not slide down and damage the paint!
Re-installing should be simple also. I do not think there are adjustments. Just put the bolts in and carefully close the hood to be sure it lines up before slamming it shut.
Again, be careful it does not hit the fenders when installing.

I hope you found this helpful.

The hood will not close all the way on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. The hood release lever seems to be broken as well. Any ideas??

Adrian - I just experienced the same thing with my 01 GP. Seems to have been caused by the cold weather. If you can open the hood using the outside release, look down into the latch mechanism and you will see where the cable slips into a washer like device (dime sized). Use a screw driver to push the round piece with the cable in it towards the passenger side about a half inch. The hood should now close. If the spring on the latch mechanism is stretched you will have to eventually replace the whole mechanism. Sometimes just pushing it and spraying with lubricant will fix it for good - sometimes not. If not you will have to push it over each time you want to close the hood.
