I noticed while opening my Hood today that my Hood latch safety was sitcking badly and staying in the off position.
A bit of oil and a bit of moving it back and forth was all that was needed.
If mine was stuck, there is probably a lot more with the same problem around as they are all built the same ( and yes it was lubed before ( but seems to need some more )). I had a Hood open up on me before ( 40 years ago in a Datsun ) and I can tell you that at 80 mph you don t have time to see it open.Its closed and all of a sudden the road just disappears and the Hood takes the shape of the windshield and roof.
Next time you pop the Hood open , pay attention to that lever and maybe add a bit of oil to it.
