    My problem is not with the up and down position, my problem is that i need my hood to come forward more. I've tried loosening the bolts and pulling it forward and then re tightening, but it doesn't really work.

    Funny how that works. When I had a fan blade problem I took it to toyota to see what the problem is. They charged me 200 just to look at it and they said they couldn't find anything wrong so they would have to start taking things apart which would be "costly". So I posted a thread about my problem an got the info I needed and fixed it my self for free. I love this website!
