Re: 1999 cougar - bonnet jammed
I had the same problem. It was too slack and when I pulled the lever on day to open the hood, the lever actually unsnapped. Anyway, I really don't know much about cars so my dad had the get the hood open for me. When he did I took a really easy way out of the problem.
There are a lot of bolts that run along the edge of the car where that line runs. I just took the line and moved it to the other side of the bolts. It's been like that for a better part of a year and haven't had any more problems. It's staying right where I put it.
