A warning for Avanti owners about their hood latch

Recommended Posts

As much as that shelf at the firewall looks like a GREAT place to

store tools while doing a repair on your Avanti, AVOID the temptation

to do this!! Tonight, I spent about an hour trying to get my hood

open because something (still dont know what) was in the way of the

drivers side hood latch releasing!! I got the pass side to release

and grabbed the rod only to have it pull out while I was pulling on

it!! I was able to lasso the latch with a coat hanger, and pull with

all my might - finally whatever was in the way ... moved. I oiled

everything, and the latches work better then they ever have. I just

thought it was worth sharing .. I had visions of missing the Show on

Saturday because I couldnt open my hood!!
