: I need help with my hood when you just rest the hood on the rear catch on the passenger side it sits lower than it does on the other side. And when you completly
: close it the hood sits right on the windshield wiper arm. What would be causing the hood to do this and what should I do? The hood isn't bent or anything it's just the way it closes. There is either a problem with the roller part or the rear catch.

The striker needs adjusting. The striker is the part that the roller rolls in to... It is held by two nuts (10mm I believe). Loosen the nuts and adjust the striker. Or better yet torque the nuts lightly to find the righy adjustment for trial and error by closing the hood and then tighten them.

Regards,
Anasatsios
