Hood wont shut
Hood wont close. Need help
Went to change my headlight out today and after I finished I went to close the hood and it won't close all the way. It will latch but won't go all the way down to lock. Anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Hood wont shut
Is the cable for the release still in place? Is there still tension on it. It's possible that the cable has broken and/or the spring loading on the bottom latch has broken.

Other than that, I would check to make sure there is nothing obstructing.

Re: Hood wont shut
I didn't have a second pair of eyes to see if the cable broke loose when I pulled the lever. I'll have to look at it tomorrow as i ran out of daylight.
