Hood Problem

When I am driving I notice on the passenger side hood when I drive it doesn't seem like it is all the way down and moves up and down, kinda like when you don't latch your hood down all the way. Any suggestions on what to do?

When you open your hood, make sure the round plastic stops are all there. The only thing I can think of is the passenger side one is missing.

The hood bumpers are adjustable. Just turn them to adjust the height of them.

Does anyone have a part number for the bumpers? My hood does the same thing, but the bumpers are already as far out as they can be.
