If you have a problem with your hood not closing on your 1990-2001 Acura Integra or Honda Civic, this video will help. It will also work for most other Hondas and Acura's as well as most of them use this type of set up.

Many times the problem is in the latch assembly, for me it was the cable that was the problem. Either way, this video shows how to repair both issues. Since the Honda Civic is on the same platform as the Acura Integra, the procedures are virtually identical.

Rusty latches can be reconditioned. If I get another one in the shop I'll demonstrate that procedure. If you wish to recondition a rusty latch, I'd recommend sand blasting and then lubricating with lithium grease when you're done.
