There is side to side "play" when you loosen the hood hinge bolts which will allow for the adjustment. Mine was not adusted well when I took delivery from the dealership but I didn't notice it until a couple of days later. I ended up aligning it myself. I had gotten mine to where it's pretty good, but its still not great.....such is life with a mass produced vehicle. Just be cautious so as not to adjust it too far to either side or the back corner of the hood will make contact with the upper rear edge of the fender when you fully open it.
