hey guys,
I am replacing hood on wifes 2011 rav4 due to accident. When we installed new hood, we noticed it did not fit good. It was
pushed back about 1/2". I thought I would have a adjustment in the hinge. Heres the confusing part, the new hinge as well as original hinge. But what I don't understand is why is only one of the two mounting holes elongated. How could that be? If both holes are not elongated how can it be adjusted. I missing something

When the hood was pushed back, maybe the hinges were bent back as well?

Did you replace the hood with a 2011 with the exact model or was it from another year? It may make a difference as a few hoods do not fit all the model according to Toyota fitment guide.
