Check the support arms for damage, they could have slightly twisted or bent causing the hood pins from lining up properly. You may need new support arms.

SOURCE: hood replacement & adjustment

Bent hood hinges cannot be fixed. Once they bend, the metal is weakened and bending them back only weakens the metal further. They will get loose and the hood will always pop up slightly at the hinges. I recommend buying a set from a junk yard. I have bought aftermarkets in the past and was very disapointed to see the metal was thiner and ended up bending too.

Hello Bruce...here are the steps to follow per All Data.

Release hood latch and open hood.
Remove the headlamp assemblies.
Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
Remove the five push pin fasteners attaching bottom of fascia/air dam to radiator closure panel.
Remove front wheels.
Remove front wheelhouse splash shields fasteners as necessary to gain access to bolts attaching front fascia to fender.
Remove the two bolts and two nuts attaching fascia to the front fenders (Fig. 1) and (Fig. 2).
Disconnect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.
Lower vehicle.
Remove two bolts attaching the upper grille support to the headlamp mounting panel at each side of the grille.
Remove bumper fascia from vehicle.
INSTALLATION

Position front bumper fascia on vehicle (Fig. 1) and (Fig. 2).
Install the two bolts attaching fascia to headlamp mounting panel at each side of grille.
Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
Install the two bolts and two nuts attaching fascia to the front fenders. The fascia should be flush to fender.
Install front wheelhouse splash shields fasteners.
Install front wheels.
Connect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.
Install the five push pin fasteners attaching bottom of fascia to radiator closure panel.
Lower the vehicle.
Install the headlamp assemblies.

The "push pin fasteners" are the pain you are having i believe. They push in, but to get them out you need squeeze them on the back & pull at the same time. If you happen to break a few, you can buy them in various sizes at the auto parts store. I hope this information is helpful, an owners manual will not have any info like this in it.

No kidding, my emblem fell off the hood, what glue do I use to reattach so it doens't fall off again? It is the original and I want it to stay.


If possible use a good (3m) double sided attachment tape, available at most autoparts stores or (3m) plastic & emblem adhesive. It should be 50 degrees both temperature out & body temp in order to properly attach.

VickiMy trunk does not stay open, does it need a fuse?


Nice Car...the trunk is supported by 2 rod/struts one on each side, attached to the rear car body, and the trunk...these struts wear out and the symptom is the trunk will not stay up by itself...these rod/struts are available at most Auto Parts Stores...or definitely on the internet...the best manufacturer if replacement hood and trunk struts is "Mighty Arm" available on the internet...prices vary by car make and model...pretty easy to change...a good Auto Parts person might help demonstrate the easy switch out...:)

How hard is it to replace knock sensor on 2000 outback


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Metric combination wrench set
  • 3/8-inch drive ratchet wrench
  • 12 mm socket
  • Knock sensor
  1. Open the hood, and disconnect the battery negative cable with a wrench.
  2. Locate the black rubber air intake tube that runs from the air cleaner box to the throttle body on top of the engine.
  3. Loosen the clamp on the air intake tube at the throttle body with a wrench. Grasp the tube and pull it off the throttle body inlet, and move it out of the way.
  4. Locate the knock sensor. It's bolted to the engine near the throttle body. Remove the hold-down bolt attaching the knock sensor to the engine block, using a 3/8-inch drive ratchet wrench with a 12 mm socket attached.
  5. Follow the electrical lead of the knock sensor to its connector, and simultaneously lift the plastic tab with your hand while gently pulling apart the plug.
  6. Remove the knock sensor from the engine bay. Compare the old sensor to your new part to ensure they are identical.
  7. Reattach the knock sensor to the engine block by threading in the original holding bolt by hand. Snug the bolt with the ratchet wrench and 12 mm socket. Do not over-tighten the bolt.
  8. Plug the new knock sensor into the original electrical plug.
  9. Gently push the throttle body air intake tube onto the throttle body. Tighten the hose clamp with a wrench.
  10. Reconnect the battery's negative terminal with a wrench. Close the hood.
  11. Start your Subaru's engine. Take the car on a test-drive and verify that the spark knock has disappeared.

2003 Buick. The pass side wiper stopped working,


the arm mechanism has a clip that pop off get a new clip and remove the access panel and move the arm over to the access area put the arm back into the hole socket and reattache clip , not the easiest repair but with a long pair of needle nose pliers you should have a better chance to complete repair. Some cars to access the arm the wiper motor must be disconnected and pulled out slightly then move wiper over and reattache pin arm into lever hole nstall clip.

HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW DO I OPEN HOOD?


After trying to pull the cable from under the hood and accidently working it loose from the latch, I had a mechanic come out to the vehicle, and he drilled two 3/4" holes that lined up with the latch mounting screws so that he could dismount the latch mechanism from the body of the Jeep. Then the whole latch assembly came loose with the hood. Next, he reattached the latch, and then attached a wire to the latch so that it can be pulled to work the mechanism without the old cable at all, though at the expense of security, because now it can be opened from outside the vehicle, but it's difficult to find unless you know what you're looking for. This might be a little more than most people are willing to do, but it worked for me.
