Dazed 2006 Vue hood strut mounts

Hello! Sorry if this is trivial, but here goes. Iíve long had a 2004 Vue Redline, and love it. Just ended up with a 2006 Vue. One of the previous owners apparently never fixed the hood strut (Iím guessing after it failed? I hold it up with a piece of wood right now) and I can see where the strut attached to the hood, but canít find where it attached to the body. I know it was near the hood hinge, and I want to restore this vehicle close to the way it was. Does anyone have a photo of the actual ball stud where it attached at the bottom of the strut? Iíve heard about home-made brackets, but Iíd like to find original parts. Is there a part number? Iím kinda stuck on OEM or ďsame asĒ OEM. Thanks folks. I appreciate the community and the help. I also love the passion we still have for our Saturns.

On my 2006 there is a tab located at the firewall (reference for distance front to back) integral with the sheet metal seam that runs front to back. Ball stud appears to have been welded to this tab. Should be easy to see. Since you haven't noticed it, yours may have had a hood prop instead of the N2 filled cylinder.

Thank you for that tip. You may be right About prop rod. I donít see a ball where you indicated. Appreciate the reply!
