The way to adjust the hood lower at the windshield is to open the hood,The bolts you want to loosen are below the hood spring,The bolts above the hood spring are to move the hood forward and backwards.loosen the lower hood bolts ,the weight of the hood will lower itself,you can fine tune it by trying to hold it up higher each time.

How do you remove front left quarter panel on 1990 Mazda b2200 ute


There should be fasteners under the hood/bonnet as well as some behind the door. (Near where door hinges attach) and there might be some on the underside of the wheel well. Remove these carefully after you have marked reference points in multiple locations to assist with proper alignment when putting panel back on.

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.

The hood was removed from a wrecked car. The car


This is a two-person job. Have the bolts in hand and lift the hood over the car's front end and locate it on the hood hinges.
Place the bolts in loosely at first. You'll need to adjust them for proper fit. Open and close the hood to align and tighten the bolts when in the right spot.
Hope this is what you needed to know.

Driver door is all messed up


The hinge is possibly sprung where it attaches to the body. If it is welded to the body, a body shop will have to fix it. Sometimes you can shim behind the hinge if it is bolted to the body, but, usually not successful.
