Hood won't lock?
I have a 2002 XL-7 and lately the hood hasn't been closing completely. I would pull the release and the hood would pop open normally. However, when closing, it would only secure past the primary latch, leaving it partially open and unlocked. I suspect it's the cable which is perhaps no longer lubricated, because the hood release tab is full of slack when the hood is open, normally there would be some tension left to pull. Any idea what's wrong, and how can this be rectified?
