Loosen the hood latch mounting bolts- you should then be able to move the latch assembly up or down. If you move it down the hood will latch closer to the bumper. Hope this helps

I opened my hood for the first time since I bought. The hood won't close all the way. any suggestions.

If ir is a brand new car there is a safety latch that should hold the hood down. You can pull on the hood to be sure the safety latch is doing its job. Drive the new car take it back to the dealer or where ever you bought it.

They will slam the hood down and smile. Better them breaking the new car than you,'

It may be out of adjustment
You can manually activate the hood latch. There is a hook like assembly that follows the hood latch down when closed. You can activate this assembly by hand. Be sure to release it before attempting to close the hood again.

If it is a used car make sure the handle in the driver side has returned to the home position. If it has I would gently slam the hood down.

Hood latch won't stay in locked position. Hood is 1 quarter inch high.

There should be rubber bumpers on the bottom of the hood where the latch is. They are located on either side (and ends). Screw them inward for lower closure.

My hood will not latch all the way shut for my 99 rodeo

There are two rubber grommets located on the hood-one at each front corner. There are replacements that can be purchased at parts stores (Help brand-usually on those "spin-around-racks"-just ask parts guy you want hood bumpers. These come in different sizes (diameters)-the ones I found and used were a bit small. I used silicone to "fatten" them up. You will see they are adjustable by threading (rotating" them in the hole in your car's hood. What seems like your hood not latching is the hood is not held tight against the latch (constant pressure from the bumpers holding hood up). Your hood is just laying all the way down-you need the bumpers.

How to fix a broken hood latch on a 98 jeep cherokee? I have a loose or broken latch on my 98 cherokee's hood, the pass side secure but the driver side dosent latch down all the way and floats up and down...

First, take a good look at it and find out what isn't working. Often they just get rusted and sluggish. Use wd40 or other solvent and work the mechanism to free it up. If that does not work, you usually can get the assembly very cheaply at an auto salvage yard.
Also make sure the rubber bumper stops are properly adjusted they tend to wear and flatten and will allow the hood to flutter if that happens. The bumper screws up and down to adjust.

your going to have to readjust the bumpers, there has to be tension so the hood pops up, try adjusting the latch to get the hood to close even, try that but put the bumper back or adjust acording to the latch adjustment and sprak latch good with wd40. good luck.
