hood will not stay close; latch is in working order; it seems that the latch has worn thru the metal?
Do you mean that the loop on the hood has worn away? Replace it.
no sir there seems to not be one..... just flat piece of metal that's worn.... also there's no bolt holes to where the loop/bar the latch attaches to... don't know if it's the og hood or not, looks like it may be
The hoods that I have seen has a U shaped bale that the latch holds onto. Is it possible to attach a piece of metal so the latch has something to hold onto?
no it doesn't have that, but I have a feeling that it will soon have something along those lines........ heading to parts store and the hardware store in the am! also looked in the parts books didn't see anything that resembled mine so, I saw a loop but that was the other hood release catch.... which seems to be holding for now! Thanks you sir!
