I have a 2011 Nissan and the hood has a 1/2 inch + gap one side but not the other. Vehicle still looks brand new, though it’s a former Hertz rental.
- Read somewhere that the rubber stoppers on the hood could not be balanced and need adjustment.
- Could the part just not be manufactured correctly?
Dealer suggested the vehicle may have been repaired but he could not tell. Hood lines are all aligned except for -this one area. Not on Carfax, as a repair.
If this is a “fleet” car, could their specs just be not as exacting as for consumers.
Will look again under the hood; maybe I will get some hints on the problem. I am aware that adjusting one side could harm the other.
