380SE hood latch

I went through the posts and couldn't find my, here I am.

I popped the hood open with a bit of difficulty, then when I went to close it the passenger's side latch caught, but the driver's side wouldn't. I lubed the latches and cable. The driver's side won't "click" shut like the passenger side does even when I have the hood open.

Any suggestions? The cable is ok.

Is there any chance that there may be some sort of obstruction somewhere in the side that's not closing?

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.

There's no obstruction. I tried to close it with a screwdriver and it doesn't "click." The passenger side latch does "click."
