Question about 1998 BMW 3 Series
I have 1995 BMW318SI and the hood will only eventually latch shut after many attempts. What is the most likely cause?
First verify if latch release is electronically operated or cable operated. If cable, push the latching mechanism back and forth, verify that it springs back into place. Then look at the shaft that the latch hooks to on the hood. Check if one is bent or see if the hood is not properly aligned on the hinges. You might need to raise the latch assembly so it hooks sooner on the hood.
