    Hello, everyone. I couldn't find any threads about this so I'm wondering what I can do about my hood hinges. It's very difficult to open the hood and when I go to close the hood it has to be pulled to one side because it wants to close crooked on its own. I wasn't sure if there might be a certain trick to opening this sticky hinges or if they can be repaired. Any advice would be apreceated, thank you.

    Sounds like you have a bent hinge.

    Thank you both. I'll do my best to figure it out.
