I drive a 2000 Forester and lately I've had trouble getting the hood to lock in place. Now, the hood doesn't lock no matter what I do. It props up when I hit the highway. Anyone have this problem?:yell:

That happened to me a while ago. It was indeed corrosion. A shot of PB Blaster cured it, and that has now become a part of my preventive maintenance regime every year.

Also, there are 2 rubber stoppers that support the hood on either side on the radiator support. You can thread these in/out to adjust the height. On my car, these were up too high when we got it and it would frequently only latch on the first catch. Quick adjustment and all has worked well since.
