View Full Version : Hood won't close

08-16-2007, 01:56 PM
So I just had to have a new stock hood put in because i got backed into. The bodyshop put my existing lltek grill and latch on the new hood which worked out fine, but when I opened and closed the hood I coudn't get it to latch all the way. The hood closes to the point where it's flush with the fenders, but it doesn't click in and latch, and my car doesn't beep when it's locked because the hoods open. Anyone know why, and what I can do to fix it?

I discovered this while I was at the office, so I was also wondering whether or not it will be safe to drive on the freeway with out the hood flyin up?

the latch should keep it from flying up, sounds like the shop forgot to hook the spring up in the latch, check that first

I think a stock hood is too heavy to fly up, no?
