I have a 2018 25T and had to remove the hood for my first oil change last week. When I replaced the hood I just left the 4 nuts slightly loose, gently closed the hood and wiggled it into alignment. The slots in my hood that the attachment bolts go through are oversized and allow some movement. When the hood looked good I gently raised again, trying not to move it back out of alignment, and tightened the 4 nuts down snug. Hope this helps.
Sorry I am late to this thread but I removed my hood today, before I did I spray painted the bolts so I could put them back exactly where they were although it has not really closed well to begin with, like the OP the corners are high and the center rubs against the cowl so I may try jondo2's solution and see if it improves.
Meanwhile does anyone know if there is any access to the engine from the cab (2011 Via 25Q)? I found the battery access on the floor but I wondered if there is access behind the console? There are four screws holding the lower section to the floor but no access behind there. There is a 1" round plastic cover near the cup holder that snaps out but can't see what's in there, is there a release in there to remove the upper part of the console?
Thanks and hoping I can hook up with other Via owners who are DIY like me.
