Question about Infiniti G35
Hood closes and catchers on th release but will not close all the way and catch
Posted by Anonymous on
For anybody who finds themselves with this same problem currently: The male part of the catchers on either side (looks like a squarish loop) is adjustable. You might think this part is set right when fully tightened as it is attached to the hood by its ***** end. Its adjusted by either twisting it clockwise or counterclockwise. If you fully tighten them they wont reach the catch before the rubber bumber (right near the piece in question) hits where it rests. The bumpers are also adjustable and all these pieces can be used in conjunction to adjust where the hood sits on the grill side.

SOURCE: Hood wont Close
Try to push it gently down. You should here the click. There is locking mechanusm on a frame and lutch on a hood. Lutch should
go in locking mechanism. When it will go comletely you should hear the click. If lutch still not go in the mechanism might get stuck (rusted or frozen). In this case you might need to spary the locking mechanism with libricant.
Please kindly let me know if the information I provide you was usefull or you need more info.

I have had this problem on a few cars over the years. If you look there is a heavy steel plate maybe 4"x4" bolted to the body part underneath the hole where the male part of the hood latch inserts. On the plate there is a pivoting latch which traps the male part, the latch is held shut with a heavy spring. By pulling on the cable from inside the car you over come this heavy spring opening the latch causing the spring on the male part to lift the hood. Problems here are usually a defect in the spring around the male part meaning hood does not pop up or the heavy spring which holds the latch shut has broken or dirt from age and use has built up between it and the backing plate or in the cable which friction defeats the spring loaded pivot action. Take the plate out without breaking the release cable and clean the dirt out or replace the heavy spring.

SOURCE: front hood wont lock closed
you have a problem with your primary hood latch, your secondary latch keeps it from flying up into your windshield. inspect the pri. latch, it may have stuck and won't close. a thorough soaking with a good penetrating oil usually frees it up. if not you may have to replace the latch.

SOURCE: hood release wont latch
This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.
