    anyone tighten their hood latch? When I shut my hood, it can move up and down like 1/4" and it drives me nuts. Doesn't make any noise necessarily, I just would like it to shut tight if I can make it. Looking at the latch, I can't see any easily adjustable places... Wondering if anyone else has done it and what it entails?

    When the hood is open, there should be some small little rubber "spacers" to the right and left of the radiator.
    Make sure those are still there and if so, you can "unscrew" them some to add more height, therefore secure the hood some.

    My hood would rattle some on rough roads and this solved my problem completely. Good luck!! Hope that's it.

    Well...I'm hoping that's it. Try it before you mess with the latch at least!
