Question about 2002 Nissan Pathfinder
The hood catch that hangs down from the front edge of the hood is loose. The piece that the catch part is on, inside the front of the HOOD, is loose. This makes it very difficult to get it to latch closed. I can find no way to tighten it in place. There's no screws, nuts, bolts, pins, or anything visible. I've already raised the Latch with cable pull that's mounted on the front of the radiator frame as high as it will go. I just bought this thing too. Somebody has tried adjusting the hood by loosening the mounting bolts up by the windshield but its still lined up right. To get it to latch shut I have to really put some force in a short slam and hold it down to prevent rebound. I HATE having to use so much force but its the only way to get it to latch. I was a machinist for over 25 years and have never seen anything like this before. How is that catch supposed to be kept in place?

That should be right if it is an idler pulley. On belts that do not have idler pulley you will have to loosen lock bolt on adjuster. Like alternator

From where the release for the steering wheel is, move your hand left and down along the dash, the latch is there with a picture of the car with hood open on it, pull that latch towards you and the hood is opened.

if you have the hood latch that is next to the fuel latch then all you have to do is look up under where the cable is and see if it is broken there or at the hood latch. If it is there then just pull back to the rear of the suv with a pair if piers slowly that should open your hood. Then go and get a new
cable from the dear or if to high in price then pic-n-pull.

try to get under the car with a flash light and see if you can see the latch. if you can, try to locate the cable from the latch and grab it with some pliers and pull to release.

Testimonial: "Thank you! However, The entire cable was disconnected. I had to take off the grill and loosen the three screws that attached the latch. "
