I think you need a bettter desciption of the hood problem before anyone will be able to help.

Does it close but not lock down?
Was the car in any accidents?
Does the hool seem to line up in some places and not in others?
Final quiestion.... What did you do to break it?

it closes, but doesn't lock down. i've tried adjusting the rubber stoppers... nothing.

i haven't been in any accidents.

it lines up.

i opened it one day, and on that day, it wouldn't close all the way again

Maybe the cable needs lubed. Or the handle. It could be stuck in the opening position.

It sounds like the cable or release mechanism need to be lubricated. Try cleaning any dirt out of everything, working some light grease into everything, then cleaning off the excess.

Same thing happens to my hood. WD40 the hell out of where the hood actually locks to the car, and I PROMISE that it will close Hot water also does the trick, but if its cold outside, you might not want to do that!

needs a hood cable, has mositure in the housing or the cable is binding in the cover. pretty commono problem, normally mistaken for a faulty latch.
