This fixed it on my 99 TJ.that is great! my hood flutters on my TJ i should hope that they make such a gizmo for my jeep as well, its a good thing they have such simple instructions to install it, I shall foward the post to my best pen pals in afghanistan, mexico, and russia. as they have little or no comprehension of the spoken english language however their ability to read it is amazing!
The spring is what causes the hood to FLUTTER !!Color me confused, was that guy replacing the bolt part, or the middle rubber-bone thing? And...why the hell wouldnt he say anything? He could have simply explained himself instead of gesturing up and down and generally acting retarded.
I've only had my hood flutter once, (07 stock X) on the highway, it definitely freaked me out a bit. I've not taken the latch part off, but i'm going to do a bit more research now on easy ways to fix this, including 'removing the spring'...whatever that means.
