Default PT Cruiser hood latch mount

I have a 2009 PT Cruiser. I recently replaced my engine cooling fan. After I attached it to the radiator, I was unable to get the hood latch mount to fit properly. I could only get two of the bolts to hold it down. Anyone else ever have this problem?

It sounds like you might not have your radiator set properly...
The bottom has a pin & grommet on each end that fits into about a 2" hole.
On the top, the rubber grommet fits into the 2 oval holes.
Once it's lined up than bolt the support back in.

I would suggest doing what LionPT posted above. I replaced my radiator fan by removing the battery and battery support plate on my 2007 PT Cruiser.
