So I changed the cabin air filter yesterday (thanks to another useful how to from wingnut. Shocking that when you pull the plastic bag out from on the filter, the fans work
) and I closed the hood till it was about 10-15cm open, then tried shutting it, and it just bounced open. The last people to be under the hood was the dealership.
should this piece be bent?
This shows (badly) how the furthest right piece is bent.
This one shows how far it will close, I'm not sure if you can see the little black release arm, but it is sticking out.
I can get it to close all the way, but it requires me to move the latch manually (poke a screw driver in above the grill). So my questions are what could have caused this? and second where can I find a replacement/should I replace it or is it fixable?
This conference call is boring (people arguing over semantics...), so I figured I would be productive.
