MG MGF Technical - Hood sticking

The hood on my F has started to stick halfway when I fold it down and needs two or three attempts to get it down.
Is there a simple adjustment or do I need a bigger hammer?

R Appleton

Just reach under when folding the hood back, and push the first hood bow towards the back.
It should then drop back all the way.
Both our MGF's have the same problem.

You can get a pair of straps which increase the tension between the two bars of the hod frame.

Cost pennies and take seconds to fit.

Completely transformed the folding action of my hood!
