[DML] Re: hood alignment?



It seems very common for the latch to be set too high. Slotting the
holes allows the latch to be adjusted lower. When doing that remove
(or at least screw all the way in) the hood stops. After adjusting the
height of the hood with the latch AND MAKING SURE THE LOOP HITS IN THE
CENTER, NOT RUBBING ON THE SIDES AS IT GOES INTO THE LATCH adjust the
hood stops. I like to have the hood sit slightly below the fender line
so I can bring it up a little with the hood stops. This keeps the hood
from bouncing while driving. Sometimes you will have to "split the
difference" ie, one side of the hood may line up and one side may be a
little high or low so you have to compromise somewhere in between.
After setting the hood stops make sure the restraining brackets on the
underside of the hood are properly positioned so they will capture the
hood stops in the event of a severe front end crash. They keep the
hood from going through the windshield and decapitating the occupants.
