Hood latch fix!

I made a video showing how easy it is to fix the notorious hood latch issues on our cars. Now it closes without having to SLAM it!

Any ideas for those people who removed that bar for intercooler clearance?

I didn't watch his video (sorry lol), but you can take the hood latch off, knock the two dowel pins out, and then move the latch around until you get it to close easily. It is basically just a bunch of trial and error and may take you a bit though.

Or just get hood pins like I did. Although I have pins and the latch still, because I'm paranoid.
