Sticky hood latch

Lucy latchSometimes the latch mechanism that holds a hood down can get sticky, not allowing it to close all the way.

The easy fix is to use a screw driver to activate each of the two springs while dropping a few drips of oil where the metal moves. It's also a good idea to lubricate each end of the control cable.

Open and close the hood several times to let the oil work its way back into the grooves.
