1998 Gs300 Hood Not Closing Completely

Recommended Posts


A couple of days ago I opened my hood and when I went to close it, it would not close all the way. By that I mean it would not seal and lock down to the point where you have to pull the release latch inside the car to open the hood. Right now you can pull the lever which is located by the front bumper and open the hood and I don’t think it is safe driving the car like that.

I’m not sure if something broke or has come loose. I think that maybe the wire that connects from the lever inside the car to the main latch which clamps to the hood has snapped.

Anybody have any ideas or similar experience?
