Why it won't lock the latch? I need help hates ti slam hard to get it to catch the latch to stay lock

worth a shot

There are two adjustment screws by the upper lid arm, 10mm I believe. Make a mark on them before you start adjusting, then move clockwise a quarter turn each, keep them the same level,keep adjusting clockwise untill you notice a difference when the lid latches. Keep track of how many complete turns you made just in case you need to come back. try that see if it helps. Good luck fellow newbeetle member.
