My 2001 gmc envoy hood won't close, it hits latch and safety latch only one holding it closed


Use some wd40 and spray in the latch assembly,now get a screw driver and manually pull/pivot the hood release cable back,now put a new extra spring on the pull cable arm on the latch assembly after you have loosened the latch cable parts in the latch,now spray more wd40 in the latch.
This is the fix 90% of the time.

So my hood latch wont latc the hood when the hood is closed and im worried it will come up and hit my windshield so i have it bungeed cord how can i fix this


check the cable that runs from the passenger compartment out to the hood. if it is stuck pulled out the it will hold the latch in released position. look down at the latch and you will see the cable . use a screw driver to work the cable and see if it is working freely. if not replace it and happy motoring.. another thing ot check if it is working properly is the latch adjustment. if it somehow got pushed down it wont be able to close around the hood bar and hold it. you should hear that click when it closes. simple fix is to loosen the bolts and raise it up a little and tighten it back up.

Toyyota tundra hood cable not connected to verticle rod connected to latch under grill.Hood is popped up 1 inch. How and where do I reach cable.


Hi Mark, If you lift the hood with your right hand once it has been released from the release lever inside the cabin, around the centre of the hood you will feel (and if you stoop down, you can see) the safety locking latch, which is released by pushing the lever upwards. This operation is carried out as you stand in front of the vehicle and lift the hood allowing that space. Regards John

I need to remove the grill from 98 mazda 626 so I can open the hood


You can't take the grill off because you have to open the hood to get the grill off.Here is a diagram of the latch and cable routing you will have to try to get to the cable from under the car and pull it to open it or use a long screwdriver to unla

Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of a typical hood mounting

Fig. Fig. 3: Have an assistant secure the hood, then remove the retaining bolts

  1. Have an assistant hold the hood in the up position. Remove the hood support and remove the hinge-to-hood bolts.
  2. Remove the hood from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the hood against the hinges, using the marks made previously on the hood to help with alignment.
  2. Have an assistant hold the hood. Install the hinge-to-hood bolts, the hood support and the hood support bolts. If so equipped, install the washer hose.
  3. Tighten all bolts securely and check the hood for proper alignment.


ALIGNMENT

Hood
The hood is provided with up-and-down and side-to-side adjustments.

  1. To make the side-to-side adjustments:
    1. Loosen the hood attaching bolts and move the hood to the proper position, then tighten the attaching bolts.
    2. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

  2. To make the up-and-down adjustment (at the rear of the hood):
    1. Loosen the hood stop bolts.
    2. Using a screwdriver, turn the hood stop screws clockwise to lower the hood and counterclockwise to raise the hood. Hood is at the proper height when it is flush with the fenders.
    3. Tighten the hood stop bolts.
    4. Repeat the procedure if necessary.


Hood Latch
See Figure 4
  1. Make sure that the hood is properly aligned.
  2. Remove the hood latch attaching bolts. Move them as necessary to align with the latch dowel. Tighten the attaching bolts.
  3. Remove the locknut on the hood latch dowel, and turn the dowel clockwise to pull the hood tighter and counterclockwise to loosen it. The proper height is when the top of the hood is flush with the fenders.
  4. Tighten the dowel locknut after the proper adjustment has been obtained.

The hood of my 1999 ford explorer will go down but not lock into place, how can I get it to lock in?


superiormind, What you need to do is lubricate the latch that holds the hood down. Look on the left side of the latch and you will see where the cable attaches. Lubricate this area while you have someone pull and push the cable from inside the vehicle as the cable will sometimes seize up. You may have to move the cable from the outside as well. Once this is done you should have no problem closing and locking the hood. Good luck with this.

The hood does not lock when it goes down. It


Your safety latch should keep the hood from flying open, but you need to get the latch working. Check and see if the hood release handle is fully in. Sometimes they stick out and keep the latch from engaging. If it is in, then spray some lube on the latch assembly, such as WD-40, and cycle the hood release handle to try to free it up. If this doesnt work, the latch might need replaced.

My hood on my jeep liberty will not complety shut? the only thing holding it down it the saftey latch.


Look at the hood alignment to make sure it's aligned properly and allowing the latch to catch. If the hood is fine you'll need to adjust the latch. Start by lubricating the latch mechanism so that it moves freely. Many times a hood will fail to latch properly because the latch itself isn't moving freely. Next check the area where the hood latches to the body and see if it's coming up short. If so manually adjust the latch until it's in proper position to grab and hold.
