Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
Posted by Anonymous on
Without more details this is the best I can suggest. With the hood open attach a length of wire or small chain to the hood via the metal loop bolted to the hood. A coat hanger would work for this but a small chain, being flexible is better. Then while closing the hood thread the wire or chain down behind the grill and in front of the radiator, being careful not to be in a position to rub against any wiring, and then attach the wire or chain to the bumper, bumper bracket, front crossmember or whatever you can find that is solid. With the chain you can add a padlock which lets you lock the hood. Remember to get the hood pulled down as tightly as possible as you don't want air getting underneath and pulling the hood up while driving. You could use a bungee cord temporarily but they generally are too stretchy and easy to tear. Trust me, you DO NOT want the hood flying open while driving down the freeway! Been there, done that and it ain't fun and it IS dangerous as all get out. Good Luck.
