Hood/Door Latch & Hinges

Clean the latch surfaces and apply light lithium-type grease (the white stuff) or clean engine oil to the latch pilot bolts and the spring anchor. Also lubricate the hood hinges. Use lithium or chassis grease to lubricate all the pivot points in the latch release mechanism.
