Sometimes you just have to think about it a minute.  

I've had a thundering squeal/squeak coming from the front of the car for years.  While driving, it drives me crazy.  

Heated the garage today, changed oil, coolant, and so on.  Car purrs like a kitten, except for that fingernail on the chalkboard irritating squeal only when the hood is down.

Examined the hood latch assembly for the first time.  Saw how it worked, and put a rubber vacuum cap over the rod sticking up from the hood latch assembly.

Now it's quiet as my wife when she's run out of things to say.

I'm guessing here.
