What is the best Lub for a sticking 2015 Sport front hood latch ?


I've had this in to Hyundai a few times now when scheduled for oil changes etc,



Service Dept lubs it, it works for a few times and then sometimes it sticks again.


Any suggessions? The latch releases, just sometimes the front hood will not pop completely open. I have to put my fingers under the hood to help open it all the way.



Thanks,


Chuck.

Have you lubricated the hood hinges also?

It may need to be adjusted...it may be too tight or the release cable may be stretched. :nerd:

All fixed!


Sprayed/cleaned entire latch with GUMOUT Carb/Choke cleaner.


Then re lubricated with CRC White Lithium Grease.


Tested: Opened/closed hood latch at least half dozen times in past 2 days- working great!
