If this is a 2004, it should be covered under warranty by VW. You should take it back to the dealer and have them realign the hood striker.

How do you fix the hood latch under the hood of a 2000 olds alreo?

you will need to be more elaborate. there is a cable that releases the hood is it seized? if so you will need to use a long screw driver to pull the arm back. there are 2 pieces of metal hinged together they are known to rust and seize. there are small springs that return the latch assy but they are weak and need a smooth working assy to work properly . finally your latch needs to be aligned properly or it will not work properly. If your latch is bent or seized completely go and buy a new one , if you take it apart it will never work right again anyway.
