Question about 1991 Honda Accord
The upper piece of the hood latch is a "U". Make sure it is aligned with the bottom "HOOK" and is not bent or moved. The bottom is held to the radiator surround with three bolts. Take the bolts loose and move the "HOOK" mechanism up so it will latch. Usually you should look at the paint and not stray too far from the "FACTORY" location.
If you make it latch, but have moved out of the proper position you may find you can not GET THE HOOD OPEN! Also check the cable to make sure it is operating properly. Have some one move it while you are looking at it. You can also add some grease or even engine oil from the dipstick if it is HANGING UP.
Do not drive if the second latch is not going to operate (lift up on the hood and see if it stops from going UP).
