Hood adjustment

Somehow the gap from the side of the hood is larger than the other. Is there any way to adjust the hood from left to right? If yes, how?

Those 10mm bolts up top inside in between where the fender and hood meet can be loosened and then the fenders can move left and right to get them to match better.

Do you mean this one? But it doesn't have any adjustability.

not the hood. you need to move the fender. look on the top of the fender underneath the hood seam. there's a row of bolts there.

no, you're fixated on the hood. the 3 bolts that attach the fender to the car chassis.

He wants you to leave the hood and move the fenders closer to the hood.

Loosen all 3 bolts, and push the fender towards the hood, tighten down but not too much as these bolts are over a painted surface.

Time to take the car to a body shop. They do panel alignments all the time, should take them less than a half hour to bring into spec

OR, just take a rattle can of flat black paint and spray the inside of that space between the hood and fender - then you won't notice it no more -
