When the hood closes, the pilot bolt is caught by the hood opening mechanism and the hook on the mechanism catches the safety latch just in case the hood opening mechanism fails on your Camaro. This hood latch assembly comes from new proprietary tooling from 2009, includes the lock plate, pilot bolt, spring, retainer, and jamb nut, and comes properly preassembled for an easy installation. WARNING: There are two nuts which hold the pilot bolt to the lock plate. Please make sure there is one nut on one side of the lock plate and one nut on the other side. This jams the pilot bolt, keeps it from backing out and reinforces the plate. Failure to check this may result in part failure at highway speed which could cause the hood to fly up.
