Did you try turning the two front hood adjusters down a couple of turns? Sounds counterintuitive I know, but so far it's made a difference in mine. When the front adjusters are too high, it makes the hinge area rattle on sharp bumps at slow speed.
Worth a try anyway right?
Question about the hood bumpers .. So turning them own a little gets rid of the hood rattle, i turned mine up to make the hood tighter .. I am dumb here, whats the rattle it corrects where does it come from ... Forgive me i am just trying little things to see if its something simple.. Was gonna try the cc thing, but there was absolutely no space for it o slide in to.. I was bummed hoping it would be simple like it was for ours
