If you open it up and it's just not retracting, just buy new. RM109 for a set isn't too costly.

If you dont mind halfcut condition, I am sure you can get cheaper via FB
It's a safety item, don't halfcut la.

Commiserations but there's only one reason why such things happens

didn't close well?
cos it is a hook? shall not pop up so easily
If properly hooked, it couldnt have opened on it's own. Then again, it's a Mivec hood and I believe you need to mod the hook a bit. Rather than look at it as bad luck, you should think of it as fortunate; you could have been going much faster.

Agreed, need to mod the hook or better, install the hood lock thing.

I forget to closed my hood properly once or twice and was driving slightly faster than 80kmh. Only slowed down after a rattling noise is heard. I did not stop as the car is driving fine. Only to discover the issue at home.

Lucky it did not flip over.
