Exclamation noise at higher speeds and the hood comes up ***

so when im cruising at arround 85 and up the hood starts coming up off the body, but only above the headlights, the hood latch is secure! this is my 06 and the dealer wont do anything because thoes arent safe speeds.... he said the car wasent built to go 80...HAHA. also theres a LOUD whistling sound arround 120-140, im thinking thats from the hood somewhere. any suggestions, i figured hood pins.

with too many lights...

Default

The whistling is normal, comes from the rear view mirrors. As for the hood, if you look at the frame under the hood, on the top of the beam right behind each headlight there should be a black rubber/plastic spacer/nub that the hood rests on when closed. You can turn these one way or the other to make them taller or shorter. Adjust them so they're tall enough to keep the hood "snug" when closed.
