Changed a bulb on the left headlight today and now the hood will not close all the way down, only as far as when I have pulled the release to open, if you get my meaning.

Any suggestions? Will take it to dealer tomorrow morning but thought I´d check here first.

Fixed. Seems the steel that the lock is attached to, a long plate going down vertical on the outside of the radiator, had somehow been pushed in to the radiator, causing the lock to be offset slightly.

Methinks previous owner has something he wants to tell me......as the stated that the car not had been in a collision or likewise. It took quite some force by the dealer mechanic to pry it back and create a space between the steel plate and the radiator.

Also noticed a few bumps on the lower end of the hood, surely as a result of previous owner trying to force the hood into place...well well. There are worse things in life!
