Ok. I have a 1987 E30 325 and I am having problems with the hood. I had it at a brake shop last weekend, and when we went to close the hood it would not close. I brought it home, and figured out how to take the lock assembly out. I took it out, and the spring inside of the lock was off one of the ends that it should have been attached to. I reattached the spring and the lock functions correctly but the hood will still not shut. I have been messing with the alignment of the lock with the two bolts that attach it to the body. I am at a loss, and any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
