I need to replace my hood latch on my Vibe. I had to do this about 5 years ago as the spring mechanism wasn’t working anymore and kept getting stuck so the hood wouldn’t stay down. Back then, the part I bought was about $30.
I think this is what I need, but I’m not sure. My mechanic is very good that he lets me buy the parts, and I just take them down to the shop and he’ll install them. https://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/gm-latch-88972905.html?Make=Pontiac&Model=Vibe&Year=2005&Submodel=&Filter=()&Location=pd
It’s well-known that the vibe is essentially a Toyota Matrix with the pontiac sticker slapped on it. That being said, would this work? http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sku/Replacement/Hood_Latch/T132316.html?apwcid=gglpla&gclid=Cj0KCQjwqvvLBRDIARIsAMYuvBFscJGXXbHTOHmpgA3riUDiPtDr2hBunPnnk8vp1EEE_zeGYuZh_xgaArzWEALw_wcB
If so, it’s so much more cost effective to go this route.
