Re: bonnet misaligned can I adjust ?
The hood latch, that's bolted to the front support, where the hood locks down should be your adustment of how far the hood closes down. THis should be loosened and move up and down to raise or lower the final resting position of the bonnet. Let me know if this is not the case. Thanks, TT.

in the drivers side its a grey square thing near the bottom near the door frame just above the gas pedal and the over one is under the bonnet in the middle you have lift and feel for a little lever and lift the bonnet and its got a little arm at the side of the wing to put in bonnet to hold it up and make sure you keep the enjectors clean I had the coupe I loved iv got a cdx now 2005 if you more help .firstname.lastname@example.org
The bolts that attach the bonnet to the hinges are also for adjusting the bonnet alignment. Slightly loosen the bolts that they still manage to hold the bonnet and check the alignment, pulling it to whichever side needs adjustment. Once you are satisfied, tighten the bolts finally.
Under the passengers side of the dashboard you will find a red lever. Pull this for stage one. Then lift the bonnet slightly and on the right-hand side slide your hand in to feel a lever. Lift the lever to release the bonnet.
its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.
1. Cabling to and from handle and latch is loose or stretched (normal wear) or broken. Replace and/or adjust 2. The latch is dirty or bent/deformed. Clean and lubricate 3. The latch needs adjusting, lubricating. Clean and lubricate 4. Misalignment of hood due to: wear, or slight bump/accident, nudge. Check for alighnment!
Try having someone pull up the hood while you pull the lever. This is a quickie only; then do items mentioned above...
Bonnet is held separately: mechanisms front left and front right. Suggest one latch only is operating/secure in your case; non-secured side will float and sit slightly proud of front wing line. Unscrew mechanism, detatch release cable and free-up "spring and pawl"; refit etc.
First, is the vehicle raised at all or still at factory height? If it is or not, then the entire front end must be inspected by someone who knows exactly what they're doing. But a lifted jeep can cause Death Wobble (google that if your truck's lifted). Sounds like a major safety issue. Possibly a worn bushing somewhere or junk steering box. Either way, after having replaced any worn parts in the front end, have it lined up. A slight misalignment shouldn't cause too much of a handling issue, but worn parts and a misaligment will ruin your tires.
Found the problem one of the bonnet hinges was beginning to seize up put loads of wd40 on it moved the bonnet up and down to ease the oil in. Then closed the bonnet and pused down on it where the hinge is so that it became level with the wings. I then just loosend the bonnet nuts slightly closed the bonnet and moved it into the best position carefully opend it and did up the nuts if the headlamps are still a bit low open the bonnet and just pull gently on the back of the head lamp and they wil come into place job done it looks great
i have come across this problem before;but at this minute i just cant recall?but the light fitting slides out of the wing towards the front;like a long tube.open your bonnet pull back the carpet against the wing in the in-side see if you can detect a screwloosen and pull light fitting forward.hope this helps.adrian
