Closing the hood

When closing the hood, use extreme caution WARNING
When closing the hood, use extreme caution not to catch hands or fingers. Be careful that you do not close the hood on anyone.
Make sure the hood is securely engaged before driving off. Do not continue driving if the hood can no longer engage after an accident, for example. The hood could otherwise come loose while the vehicle is in motion and injure you and/or others.

Ц Lower the hood and let it fall from a height of approximately 8 inches (20 cm).
Ц Check that the hood has engaged properly.
If the hood can be raised slightly, it is not properly engaged. Open it again and close it with a little more force.
