Hood latch won't catch to shut hood tightly, No, 2013

Customer Question

Hood latch won't catch to shut hood tightly
JA: Do you hear a thunk when you pull the lever?
Customer: No
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2013 xterra
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No. We have just sprayed wd40 and flipped the switch a few times. Nothing.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No. I just opened the hood to fill the washer bottle and when I closed the hood it wouldn't close tightly.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Nissan Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

what do you mean it won't close tightly?

is there a gap? it won't fully close?

make sure you didn't leave anything under the hood. I have seen many people leave the lids to their containers on the radiator supports and strut supports which prevents the hood from closing.
