open your hood an loosen your hold bolts slightly, then lower you hood down and slide your hood around until the gap is where you want it. then reach your arm under the hood and tighten it with a box end wrench.Hi all. to add to the list of things i've got to do with Elsa the saab... I want to try to eliminate an annoying hood gap i have. It's mostly on the passenger side it's not too terrible but it kills the lines of the car. Any idea of how to address this?
