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.

How to release the hood latch


You will need to go up from the bottom of the car, and try with either metal clothes hanger (or other stiff flexible items) to pull the latch. You have a hard one here, and wont be easy anyway you do it. Good luck!

You forgot to hook the cable up during install? I guess I would take it back apart & hook the cable up.

Trunk pop open when driving


close hood and lift up on hood to see if it stays closed.
if not, check inside car to see if latch(that you pull) is in the correct position. you can tell when hood is closed that there will be some tension on latch.
check under hood, where hood closes on latch of hood, is tight and secure(no loose bolts)
also check cable if broken.
only those things can cause hood to pop open.
if all visual inspections check out and still continues to open while driving then the latch (the mechanism that hold the hood down) is bad. vibrating while driving will cause it to open.

Hood release cable is broken


Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

Hood latch not staying shut.


as far as i can find out no recall on hood latch. you can check with chevy they may have not listed it publicly.
it could have been caused by the latch mechanism slipping a little out of position and not latching completely. check it for allignment upon closing after repair.
