Hi Guys. The hood will not close and latch closed - it only goes to the intermediate position where you can then manually release the lock to lift the hood.

Does anyone have the ability to take a picture of a healthy hood release and latch mechanism? Here is mine (though the heavy spring is removed when I took the pictures). I am pretty sure the ball at the end of the hood release cable should be fixed to something not hanging a bit loose but I can't see anyplace. Not sure if some old rubber piece disintegrated or something else. Latch inside the car is fine, cable is fine, springs are all there and cleaned and greased but hood will not lock closed. Manual has zero information in it.

THANKS!
