Hood Latch

This latch was easy to install and replaced a worn out latch which was making it almost impossible to close my hood. Delivery was quick and the quality is great. Another winning purchase from AM.

    Great OEM Replacement

    This latch is a genuine Ford OEM replacement product, so you can expect the same quality as what is or was under the hood of your Mustang. There has been one revision to this latch which is great for people with aftermarket hoods, there is only one dowel pin. On the factory latch, there are two 8mm bolts that secure the latch to the vehicle with two dowel pins for alignment. If you upgrade to an aftermarket hood, many times you need to remove the dowel pins with a punch and then reinstall the latch to be able to adjust it, but this version has one pin on the driver's side to secure it to the vehicle and no pin on the passenger's side allowing you to adjust the latch up and down simply by loosening the two bolts holding the latch on. Before replacing your latch, be sure to check for unusual wear on the square opening in your hood where the latch secures to, it is a very common issue that can be solved by simply bending the metal where the contact point is by approximately 1/8" with a pair of pliers where you see the wear pattern. This generally solves the latching problem.

    Really good for aftermarket hood

    I got the cowl hood and originally the opr hood latch and that was horrible compared to the Ford latch, it is a lot easier to open now
