Plastic piece on hood latch

Recommended Posts

I pulled my front bumper off the other day to clean the radiators, and when I popped the cover underneath the hood latch off, it popped off the little plastic or rubber piece on the hood latch. Does anyone know the part number for that little piece?

On the assembly just above 8 and 9 in the picture, it's the protrusion on the left. It's the catch that you pull to release the hood after you've pulled the lever inside the car. I'm pretty sure it used to have a piece of rubber on it, but I may be mistaken. Maybe someone could check.

Secondary hood release lever. There is a red plastic cap on 1998 up but maybe not on some early 1998s. It is so old eyes can see it.

My 1997 did not have it and I have never seen a 1997 with it. When my car got hit the body shop put the new style latch in and I asked them to remove the cap since it did not come on my year. You cannot buy just the cap. I would give you mine but it was thrown away.
