I lifted my hood to the full vertical position on my 190E so I could change the airfilter. When I went to close the hood, it would not latch! I thought it might be the gas strut not fully compressing. I figured I would give it some time to compress. After about 2 hours I came back and tried it again. This time it latched
I decided to test drive the car to assess any change with the clean airfilter. Unfortunately as soon as I hit 55mph it popped back up!
Fortunately, the safety latch caught it and I safely pulled over to the side of the road to change my pants and shut the hood.
With a fesh pair of pants and the hood shut again, I turn around and head back home. Now at 50mph the hood pops up again. I shut it again and attempt to keep my speed under 50 mph. I make it home and swear I will never open my hood again.
I drove the 190E today and everything was fine, even at 65mph.
I'm wondering if it's the hood latch, hood strut or kharma that's causing this to happen. Any ideas
