My hood release only releases the right side, unless I have someone pull up on the left side while I pull the hood release. This is fine as long as there are two people. I applied lubricant to the release mechanism and it looks fine. Any suggestions. Is there an adjustment.???

There is an adjustment for the latches.I think there is also an adjustment for the cable.But I think you have to slide the latch to adjust the cable.

1) pop open your hood.
2) get a 10mm socket with an extension.
3) loosen up the three bolts on the hood latching mechanism on the drivers side
4) slide the whole mechanism down between 1/16" to 1/8".
5) tighten the three bolts (careful not to strip them)

That's it, should work like a charm

Hey Tech, I don't see a cable adjustment for the hood cable. Everything looks plastic with nothing threaded, as a temp fix to tighten it, I put a small zip tie under the cable lead stop ball.
Thanks,
Joe

Adjusting the latch on the drivers side would be the adjustment.
