Hey:


On my 1984 corvette, the driver side latch for the hood wont close. While the passenger side is in the proper locked position, the driver side one is pushed upwards. Does anyone know how I can get it so the hood goes into the normal resting position?

Thanks for the help,
Jon

Check the bumper stop on the hood it might have come loose and is preventing the hood to latch.
Side note I had a rattle on the pass side and it sounded like the dash was ratttling it turned out to be the bumper stop was not contacting the pad at the latch
To check this pull up on the corner of the hood and if you hear a clunk it's too loose, to adjust lengthen the stop till the clunk is gone
If the latch is too tight shorten the stop till the hood latch clunks and lengthen the stop till the hood latch dont rattle.
Hope this helps.

There also is a cable on both sides that controls the latch that opens & closes the hood. The side that isnt closing might need ajusting?:huh:
