    The hood latch on my less than a year old TD33 has been a bugger to open and this week would not open. I took off the latch assembly put the PB Blaster to it and now it will open but not close. There appears to be a chromed block that should engage the latch jaws but it will not slide into place on its own. Haven't disassembled the assembly yet as it's under warranty and I have visions of the springs inside it flying to all four points of the compass. Perhaps the dealer will replace or repair the assembly. Regardless I am wondering if other NH owners have had a problem and how they handled it if off warranty, ex. bungies or let the hood lie there on it's own weight?
