Coming with an odd one here - my sister’s Yaris was bumped up in the front while parked. After a shop did the repair, the hood closes just fine without slamming it too hard but the actual hood doesn’t sit flush. It sits higher up. The rubber mounts on It don’t touch the crossmember, at least a finger away. I can push the hood and it goes into the correct position but once I let it go, it goes back to being too high. As it has no other contact, my suspect is the hood latch mechanism.
Looking at the bolts, it is in the highest position right now. Would lowering the latch pull the bonnet down and make the actual gap as it should? If not, what else can I do to adjust before just buying the crossmemvber and latch assembly and change them?
