Door pinching hood, just creased the hood! Dang it.

As i just opened my passenger side door, it pinched the top of the hood and bent it, flaking some paint away. Dang it. I tried a search, but didn't find this exact problem. Any ideas? Sounds like I either need to adjust the door toward the rear of the car or move the hood toward the front of the car.

Ok, your post helped me out. While checking the hood hinges for cracks, I saw the three bolts on each hinge that hold the hood in place. The right side was loos, and it apparently shift back toward the windshield, causing the creasing. Oops. I tightened it, and now everything is good to go.

Thanks for the suggestion.
