One of the hood latches mounted in the radiator support is not holding the square "C" loop mounted to the underside of the trunk. Took it apart and the hook that holds the loop seems to have a bit of play which the working latch doesn't have. It probably needs to be replaced but I can't find it in any of the diagrams on the EPC after searching every possible group, and several sub-groups. Anybody know where this is located on the EPC?
Thanks, and this isn't the first time I've asked for help locating parts on EPC.

Thanks for the response. It is not #13 which is the upper (loop) part. It could be #14, but the picture in the diagram is very poor but not sure if it could be any other part in this diagram.

Not sure what you mean by quite a long latch....trunk. The description on EPC clearly says engine hood catch, so where does "trunk," come into your response? I'm puzzled.

So it is #14 in the diagram above. I have purchased from the linked vendor and they sell genuine parts. I try and get several because of shipping costs.

Better to laugh with than to laugh at. Thanks for reminding me that I need to proof and proof again what I post.
