If those are the pneumatic style, simply support the hood and unbolt the two ends.

That or they are clipped on. Have a helper hold the hood for you while you remove the old supports.

Can also clamp one side with a vice grip and it will hold the hood while you do the other side. However, the safest bet is to do it with a helper.
