HOW DO YOU ADJUST A HOOD OR THE MOUNTS ON A . ALSO IS THERE ANY ADJUSTMENT FOR THE HOOD LATCHING MECHANISM?

1997 Nissan Maxima • 90,000 miles

Is there a way to adjust the hood or hood mounts on a 1997 Nissan Maxima so the spacing between the fenders and hood is even? Is there a way to adjust the hood latching mechanism?

Dunno the spacing clearance you mentioned-but you can try loosening the hood hold down nut and try to adjust it closer-Good Luck

Usually the hood latch is the one thst causes unbalanced gaps between fenders on either side of vehicle.

Hood latch can be adjusted but the movement is limited. Ensure the fenders are adjusted correctly. They can be adjusted slightly by loosening the holding bolts.
