These are two unrelated questions. First, has anyone had a difficult time with their hood latch on a 2004 Forester? About 3-4 years ago I went to close the hood and it just bounced back at every attempt. At first I thought I needed a new latch. Then I was told to grease it heavily and sure enough that worked. I have never encountered this with any other car and need to re-grease every once in a while.

Second, when it is really cold out (below 15-20 degrees) I get a fresh gas smell that comes through the heater vents. I was told once by a dealer to get the "rails" tightened? Didn't know what they were talking about so I never did it. Any opinions out there on both issues?

Thanks

BV
