Sorry for the delay in replying.
I am not sure of the exact location of the hood switch for your model but it should be visible if you open the hood and check the panel, most likely near the headlights.
No special tools are required but a screw driver and/or plier would be required to adjust it.
Check if the hood switch bracket is bent too far away and not allowing the switch to be closed fully when hood is locked.
