Hood Latch Assembly?

Anyone got a pic of there hood latch assembly off a 94 xr7? This one I picked up has a flat bar that comes from the assembly towards the passenger side and is just flopping around.

Come on, 1 of you xr7 owners must have taken a pic of your engine compartment at one time or another? Or maybe someone that is parting one out has what I need? The manual I bought doesn't show it.

Sounds like the bar that is used to release the "safety catch". It is the second hood release that holds the hood down in case the main catch fails. You know, you pull the release inside, then walk around the front of the car, reach under the hood, slide the bar to the side and raise the hood.

The slider slips into a small slot in the header panel above the passenger side headlight.

Thanks Rod! That's what I was looking for. I noticed that the piece that it slips into and mounts to the support is broken on mine, I'll have to see if I can locate one somewhere.
