Default Hood Assembly

Passengers have really started to notice that my front right part of my hood really starts to shake and says my car isn't safe after 80mph. I need to know what is causing this. All my hinges look good. When I get a PCM and test my top speed I don't want my hood flying off.

There'* a adjuster on the rad support. 1" or so, round. Black plastic. Adjust it.

You might try adjusting the hood latch also. Try moving it down just a little to tighten up the hood.

Hans i realize that you are in the drivers seat when you are driving 120mph.....the hood flutter is not visible from the drivers seat....Passengers can see it quite clear....I have ridden in 4-5 Bonnes and they ALL have the flutter including my Car....

Try the adjustments as posted and see what happens

Set ur seat low enough that you can't see it. LOL works for me, I get the flutter at like 55. But remember too, it'* not gonna come up on ya probably under 90 MPH. i think that'* the national limit or something.
