Is it a big job to replace a hood latch on a 1992 Ford Mercury Grand Marquis?
According to my trusty Haynes manual, it's not that big a
The hood latch is attached to the radiator support and is
attached with 2 bolts. Before replacing it, scribe a line around --
or use a Sharpie marker to outline -- the placement of the current
latch. Remove the bolts and the cable release linkage.
Installation is the reverse of removal. After installing the new
latch using the scribed lines as a guide, check the fit of the
hood. It should be flush with the fenders and the nosepiece. If it
isn't, adjustments can be made by loosening the latch mounting
bolts and sliding the latch up, down, left, or right and then
tightening the bolts.
