Q: Car hood not closing

Hi Most hood latch issues have to be diagnosed by a collision shop, but there are a few things that you could have checked before making such an expensive trip. The easiest thing one could do is to lubricate the hood latch with a little WD-40 or similar lubricant. The most common failure of hood latches are the latches becoming stuck due to lack of lubrication. Also, on that particular model of Ford, there is an adjustment you can make to the alignment of the hood latch itself. The hood latch adjustment bolts are located on the radiator support. They provide a very small amount of adjustment for the hood latch position. If neither of the above is the case, it is likely an internal issue with the hood latch locking claw. A trained technician, such as the staff provided by YourMechanic, will be able to perform the hood latch adjustment and if necessary replace the hood latch assembly.
