I had this issue and several others that I know had this problem as well.
The fix that I found to get rid of this problem is to go to your hood latch, unscrew the plastic screw, pull the plastic holder down, and you can turn the latch to extend it longer or shorter. I believe if you turn it to the right, it will make the latch shorter and turn it to the left makes it longer. So you would need to turn it where the latch where it grows longer so it doesn't hit the pieces you are hitting. If you don't do this, the hood will keep rubbing and leave a mark on your hood itself.
