how to adjust the front hood

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have words of wisdom on how to go about adjusting the front hood? I have gaps that are not correct and I am trying to fix that. Thanks in advance.

Resurrection time...

I need to adjust the "I" gap, the hood sits slightly higher than the inner fenders just on the sides...it's odd. In the pic attached you can see it slightly. The hood receiving latch is adjusted as far down as I can get it.

When it is closed, I can push down on the front of the hood and it will put down and spring back up a little...hmm.

Another five years, another resurrection.


Like the above posters, my car's front hood is askew.  If you're facing the car, it looks like it is shifted to the passenger side and slightly clockwise.  There is a noticeable gap on the driver's side versus the passenger, plus the hood sits higher than the fender on the passenger side.


I had some luck loosening the four mounting bolts and repeatedly adjusting them, thus reducing the gaps.  However, I'm unclear how a person adjusts the hood to meet the measurements in Loren's picture.  In order to adjust the hood it seems you have to loosen the four mounting bolts, lower the hood, make the adjustments, and then raise it back up again and tighten the bolts.  The problem I have run across is that upon raising the hood, it moves slightly, resulting in it being off again.


Neither the rubber buffers nor the latch matter as I can see the hood is already off when lowering it down.


Any ideas?
